    Released across UK cinemas on 23rd April 2010
    Written by
    David Baddiel
    Directed by
    Josh Appignanesi (Song of Songs, Ex Memoria)
    Omid Djalili (Comedian, The Mummy, Gladiator)
    Richard Schiff (The West Wing's "Toby", I Am Sam)
    Igal Naor (HBO's House of Saddam)
    Archie Panjabi (The Constant Gardener, East is East)
    Meet MAHMUD NASIR (Omid Djalili), loving husband, doting father and something of a "relaxed" Muslim.
    Does the "F" word occasionally pass his lips? It's hardly worth mentioning.
    Does he say his prayers five times a day? Of course! Well, usually…
    Does he fast every day of Ramadan? Who's counting anyway?
    He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is as Muslim as it gets. But after his mother's death a discovery turns Mahmud's world upside down.

    He finds his birth certificate which reveals that not only was he adopted at birth…but he's Jewish, and his real name is Solly Shimshillewitz!
    As Mahmud tumbles headlong into a full scale identity crisis, the only person he can turn to is LENNY (Richard Schiff), a drunken Jewish cabbie who agrees to give him lessons in Jewishness, which start with how to dance like Topol. Oy vey.
