Description

This crime drama film is set during the height of clashes between security forces and protesters. A forensic doctor, suffering from alcoholism, examines a body at the morgue and is struck by something unusual. His report provokes much anger and he embarks on a search for the truth, with the help of a female journalist.
The marketing for the film stated, "Gunshot follows a mysterious murder that connects the destinies of the protagonists and changes their beliefs about the concept of truth".
The film received praise on the international film circuit but was heavily criticised by supporters of the 25 January 2011 revolution for promoting a pro-regime narrative. Although the setting for the film is reminiscent of the revolutionary protests, it contains no reference to the revolution.
