Its hardly worth mentioning. Does he say his prayers five times a day? Of course! Well, usually Does he fast every day of Ramadan? Whos counting anyway?He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is as Muslim as it gets. But after his mothers death a discovery turns Mahmuds world upside down. He finds his birth certificate which reveals that not only was he adopted at birth but he is Jewish, and his real name is Solly Shimshillewitz! As Mahmud tumbles headlong into a full scale identity crisis, the only person he can turn to is LENNY (Richard Schiff), a drunken Jewish cabbie who agrees to give him lessons in Jewishness, which start with how to dance like Topol.

3.0 out of 5 stars NO SUBTITLES !!! 21 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
I watched this at the start on BBC iplayer but had to stop watching it due to going to work. It has the subtitles at the time. I was gutted to find it had NO SUBTITLES on the DVD.
Please can someone tell me there is one available WITH SUBTITLES (customer is deaf) That is why I only rated it 3 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm 7 Aug 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this would have been funnier with Omid Djalili in it but I suspect the writers were trying to be too politically correct with regards to Muslims and Jews. The story plot is not really plausible since a Jewish baby put up for adoption would go to a Jewish family. It would have been a funnier film had Omid's Jewish parents tracked him down, but nevertheless it's still a funny-in-places film and probably worth watching more than once - after a time gap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny. Omid is fantastic! 25 April 2010
By co204jm
Format:DVD
I watched this at the cinema last night - it's hilarious! Omid Djalli is very funny in the lead role - and there are cameos from lots of british comedians. The film tackles many religious stereotypes (all done tastefully), resulting in a very amusing and heart-warming story. This is one of the funniest films I have seen in years!

2.0 out of 5 stars Infidel 17 Jun 2014
By Quizcat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like the main actor he's usually funny. Heard of the film from a workmate and thought it sounded good. It was full of foul language with a relatively weak storyline. I wouldn't recommend it. Live and learn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda funny. 24 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wasn't fantastic, a great film to watch if you are bored. Not really a movie that you would watch with the family, but its funny if you enjoy its plot. Has a few funny parts, but I was expecting a hilarious comedy from Omid Djalili.

Of course it is engaging, and you wont find your self falling asleep, so for the money its a good spend and will be a nice film to watch with friends or alone, but not parents or children.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Infidel is directed by Josh Appignanesi and written by David Baddiel. It stars Omid Djalili, Richard Schiff, Yigal Naor and Matt Lucas. Music is by Erran Baron Cohen and cinematography by Natasha Braier. Mahmud Nasir, a British Muslim, goes through an identity crisis when he discovers he was adopted as a child and born to a Jewish family.

It's a tricky subject to make a comedy out of, but by and large the makers have produced an enjoyable and observational pleasure. Led by the ebullient Omid Djalili as the conflicted protagonist, film unfolds in a series of sections involving Israel, Palestine, Antisemitism and Islamophobia. Along the way there are some great gags, both visual and vocal, but then it culminates in the inevitable message and relies heavily on a weak reveal. The motives and means are genuine, this is not an offensive movie, it has a point and for those who want to delve deeper there is much to kick off discussion. But ultimately it's a good comedy with strong themes of identity and family ties binding the racial hot points at the core. 6/10

2.0 out of 5 stars should have been better 28 July 2011
Format:DVD
The film is not bad, but had a lot of potential and just doesn't hit the spot. Some amusing scenes, but a very poor ending.
