Namir Abdel Messeeh grew up in France, and he never asked his father much about his past in Egypt. But in Toi, Waguih, Messeeh probes into long-buried family history, putting quiet, persistent questions to a dignified man who never spoke of the torture he once suffered at the hands of Egyptian authorities. Messeeh brings rich psychological perspective to the father-son dynamic and sophistication to his technique. (Cameron Bailey)
