The Hamburg Cell
Added to my films
A fictionalized account of the September 11 hijackers. This is the story of two men - Ziad Jarrah, a Westernised Muslim who falls under the influence of terrorist mastermind Mohammed Atta, and Jarrah's absorption into fundamentalism, culminating in the events of September 11th 2001. As Jarrah, Karim Saleh is a major find, coping expertly at the outset with Jarrah's changing world view and shading the character to show that crucially, what Atta offered Jarrah above all else was confidence and a sense of purpose.
