"I hope Christians and Muslims will leave the cinema and embrace and kiss one another."

I can’t wait to see Hassan & Morqos, a new Egyptian film about a Christian Copt and a Muslim who switch identities and live under-cover in the same building.

I love this kind of stuff. I think serious issues are best tackled via humor.

Plus, Adel Imam and Omar Sharif are dreamy…
