Directed by Kevin Macdonald and adapted from the NY Times bestseller “Guantanamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this story is a true story that inspired Slahi’s struggle for freedom after years of imprisonment and free incarceration by the US government.

With the United States government, of his dedication to justice. and the test. His controversial defense, combined with the evidence uncovered by the formidable military attorney Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), reveals a shocking truth and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be subdued.
Kevin Macdonald‘s Mauritania is the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, convicted in the famous US naval base in Guantanamo. Slahi was on the US government’s radar for allegedly helping recruit kidnappers involved in the September 11, 2001 attacks. In the post-September 11 world, any contact with a suspect is suspected. The US government and institutions have decided that “someone” must pay for the tragedy. He is one of those “people” who are divine.
Writing, MB Traven, Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani tried to make “The Mauretanian” more interesting by playing with its structure and jumping between ’05 and ’02 when Salahi was tortured, then Macdonald made him stronger by speaking with the aspect ratio that he was playing.
Some of them are effective. The 4: 3 shot of Salahi’s opening scene reinforces the impression that he is trapped and trapped, but that becomes superfluous: Macdonald has at one point covered the current scene on the big screen in flashbacks. The characters disappear in an exaggerated direction, resulting in re-enactment of Salahi’s suffering at the height the film. A long series of gruesome violence.
The film is adapted from The Guantanamo Diary, released in 2015 while still inside, by MB Traven writers Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani: regularly written pages were handed over to his lawyer, Nancy Hollander. French-Algerian star Tahar plays Rahim Slahi. Jodie Foster plays Hollander and Shailene Woodley is her partner Teri Duncan. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the acronym for Military Attorney, Lieutenant.
Daring insulting and defamatory attorney Nancy Hollander takes over the Slahi case and prepares to take on the military’s prosecutors. Reigning giants Jodie Foster and Benedict Cumberbatch gave these representatives of justice their charisma. Even though they were on both sides, they eventually came together in respect for morality.
Tahar Rahim, with his extraordinary ability to hide his character’s intentions. Served to perfectly represent a man who could easily accused of being wrong for being able to imitate his innocence. Slahi confessed to the crimes he accused of but he hurt.
