DVD Review: The Infidel (15)

An East End Muslim’s world is turned upside down when he discovers he’s adopted – and Jewish.

Regular family man and relaxed Muslim mini cab driver Mahmud is left questioning his whole identity after his mother dies and he discovers his adoption papers among her belongings.

Clueless about the Jewish faith, Mahmud, or Solly as his birth certificate says, looks to his drunken Jewish cabbie workmate to guide him through his new found birthright.

Gently poking fun at the traditions of both religions, comedian Omid Djalili stars in this warm David Baddiel comedy about identity, faith, family and friendship.
