Description: Desire and addiction form the confluence of terrible choices and unintended consequences for Veronica Lambert. Her desperation to see her desires fulfilled is palpable as she acclimatizes to large town life, while assuaged by the nice intentions of Mr. Fresh York, an old-time film hustler who befriends the fresh comeback to the Hollywood scene. Her interest in real love and naivete in life becomes fodder for her married lover, who ultimately seduces her into a criminally-sociopathic and brutal act. Related to Ruin or Pulp Fiction, every character's progressively egocentric motives juxtapose one another, form a cross-hatch of competing elements to complicate and in the end, clarify the outcome of a long path toward betrayal and loss.

Zinzana Reviews:

From the moment I saw the trailer, I knew this movie would be nice and it did not disappoint.The film follows an alcoholic who ends up in prison in a remote town. His time behind bars suddenly becomes a living hell at the hands of a madman cop who pays a surprise visit. Will he be able to escape this lunatic?The performances are perfect, notably Ali Suliman who plays Daban (the psycho cop) to perfection. His performance, although unique, is slightly reminiscent of Heath Ledger's Joker, in his ability to be funny as well as menacing. The comedy/chemistry between Daban and the portly female warden who takes a liking to him is brilliant. The cinematography is brilliant, dark and definitely adds to the suspense.A highly suggested film.


I am not familiar with middle-easter cinema but I have been amazed by this film where actors, director, scenarists and dialogue writers have given birth to a gem of a film. The actors build up a powerful intensity for this surprising thriller, and the director has very intelligently alternated suspense, humour, and tension, the effect is a wonderful success for a first-time detail movie from the director. I want it was dubbed in English - also because it would probably have a broader success internationally - but it is the only critique I would have. For the rest, a very solid thriller for whoever wants to spend a nice time at the movie. Unique mention to Ali Suliman whose performance is outstanding and Ahd Kamel whose ability to catch the camera's eye is impressive (despite the short role her hero has).


The first detail movie by Emirati filmmaker Majid Al Ansari and produced by Photo Nation Abu Dhabi, 'Zinzana' is a thrill ride from the very first frame.Waking up in a jail cell for getting into a war the night before, Talal (Saleh Bakri) pleads to the warden to set him free. Since he has lost his wallet and has no I.D. or cash for bail, only a judge can decide his fate, which may take up to 48 hours. This is when the quirky maniacal Dbaan (Ali Suliman) enters the station impersonating a police officer. After murdering the warden, Dbaan later establishes himself as the boy in charge and starts a cat-and-mouse minigame of life and death odds with a confused Talal.With the whole film taking zone inside the one room in the station, Majid Al Ansari has managed to craft a movie that doesn't feel repetitive. There are shots so creative, the audience is taken through walls, pipes in the ceiling and even up into the sky for a satellite view of the area. The camera angles, which continually shift from close-ups to medium long shots works well, possibly done to present one's despair and the other's psychotic lunacy.The two leads are impeccable in their respective roles, but it is Ali Suliman (Dbaan) who truly steals the show. His motives or agenda are never made clear until the very end of the movie. His cartoonish antics continually shift from quirky dance routines, to tempting Talal to have a drink, and even solving a puzzle in a Sherlock Homes style manner. His is a hero that is complex and can either be classified as a genius or a lunatic. Saleh Bakri (Talal) is the finished opposite to Suliman's Dbaan, with a more reserved performance of his anguish. He is not only dealing with troubled private issues, but also a angry boy who is continually poking into his psyche and wrapping him around his fingers. The sweet natured female deputy Aida (Yasa) continually drops in to deliever some comic relief to the surmounting tension, and her innocence is a breath of new air.Al Ansari manages to set a steady momentum throughout the 90 minute run-time, and constant attention is paid to where the characters are both physically and emotionally during the film. For a one-set neo- noir thriller film, Zinzana may possibly tag the United Arab Emirates' cinematic entry to a global audience.
