As a fan of many of the shows Chris Morris has made, especially Brass Eye [DVD] [1997
], I looked forward to watching this.
If anyone could make comedy out of troubling and taboo subjects, it's Morris, although I did worry if terrorism might be a step too far even for him. I needn't worry.
This won't suit all tastes and, if you're sensitive about religious issues or squeamish, this isn't the film for you.
Kayvan Novak, best known for his Channel 4 creation 'Fonejacker' Fonejacker - Series 1-2 Plus Facejacker - Complete [DVD
], steals the show with a naive and slapstick role with juxtaposes the film's serious subject matter.
Despite several 'laugh out loud' moments, it's wrong to describe this as just a comedy. At times it asks some serious questions, albeit with humour mixed in, and leaves you with a mix of emotions that few other films can lay claim to.
