Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

High five! It's hard to know which is better news: the fact that Saddam Hussein wrote a best-selling novel, the fact that it's a romance about a poor girl who falls in love with a king, or the fact that Sacha Baron Cohen is turning it into a comedy called The Dictator (to be released May 2012).

Can you honestly think of a better pairing for an adaptation of veritable modern classic Zabibah and the King? They go together like rama lama lama derka derka Mohammed Jihad.
