The Mamba

Director: Ali Samadi Ahadi – Action, Comedy, 96 min, Germany, Austria 2014

THE MAMBA is a top international terrorist. A deadly fighter, sniper, bomber, and master of deception. Hossein Sarivi is a good husband and works at a biscuit factory. Their mutual resemblance is uncanny, but they have never met, until now.

While the clumsy and eccentrically naïve Sarivi is secretly looking for a job so that his domineering wife Pari doesn’t find out about his instant dismissal, he is unfortunately mistaken for “The Mamba”. Sarivi, who doesn’t know what’s happening to him, is sent on a dangerous mission by dubious Russian clients that takes him from Vienna to London and Casablanca. In the process, he finds himself in the crosshairs of neurotic CIA agent Bronski and inevitably makes an enemy of the real Mamba himself.
