The Devil's Double (2011) - Biography | Drama

The Devil's Double (2011) - GOOD MOVIE

  The Devil's Double is based on the true story of Latif Yahia an Iraqi Lieutenant kidnapped from the front-line in the Iran/Iraq war to become the body double for Saddam Hussein's notoriously vicious and sadistic son Uday.
  This film is magnificent. Well directed and brilliantly performed, the characters of Yahya Latif and Uday Hussein are so well played as to you can see the difference in personalities and the conflict between them, and they are played by the same actor. Brilliant! It is a beautiful film to watch, it is very visual and not for those who are squeamish. Great narrative and very intriguing, always keeping you interested at every moment.
  This film is definitely NOT for children. The portrayal of unchecked cruelty and power is unforgettable.
