Mahmud's (Djalili) life is turned upside down when a secret birth certificate kicks off a full-scale identity crisis.

Review

Hilarious and heart-warming. --Jonathan Ross

The Infidel will be the summer's funniest film. **** --The Evening Standard

Comedy can sometimes tackle themes that more serious films would shy away from. This is one. **** --The Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

I have read reviews saying this tried to be PC but it really is not, it is just a screwed up idea, or 2 about cultures that do not mix being crossed, it causes chaos in both communities, the actors are from those communities, as is the writer. Omid Djalili really plays it so well showing versatility and a degree of sensitivity to both groups of people, it points out how similar Islam and Judaism really are yet poles apart. I found parts of it touching parts of it confusing, and parts of it outrageous, but almost always funny, it shows how strong personalities are drawn to religion for power and as a way to hide from their past. The hatred shown exists between the communities though they really are trying to do and say the same things, this shows up the bigotry brilliantly.
I love the way it illustrates real issues in a very funny way, in an odd way this offers solutions to some of the extremism out there.

this film is a must see for too many reasons

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!

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 May 2012
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 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Funky Pete on 25 Aug. 2012
Format: Blu-ray
The movie was worth it just for Omid's long winded and bizarre yiddish joke at the bar mitzvah, at which me and my wife laughed so hard we nearly puked! We replayed it 3 times before letting the film continue.

The movie was, as a whole, very good. The ending however was weak, and really broke the flow of the film with the seeming total laziness with which it had just been flung in there to tie the story up. Add to that the mega-cringy moment of Omid's son shouting 'thats my dad! thats my dad!' with pride after he made a speech to some Muslims, and the movie had a disappointing ending which was out of character with how truly hilarious the rest of it was.

Good film, lame ending, but nevertheless definitely worth it.

Silly, trashy film. Great for if you need a film that you don't need to think too much about - you just want to be made to laugh.
Way better than when I saw it live in the theatre - though my friend thought the opposite.

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.
