The Devil's Double

Synopsis: Baghdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought - but for a price. This is Uday Hussein's world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on. When army lieutenant Latif Yahia is summoned to Saddam's palace, he is faced with an impossible request - to be Uday's 'fiday' - his body double, or have his family condemned to death. In a world entrenched in betrayal and corruption, knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life or death for Latif, as he battles to escape from his forced existence.

My family are going to think that I'm dead.

Let them think you died a martyr.

I know it's difficult,

but it's what Uday wants.

He will accept nothing less.

She will be knocking on the door

of every hospital in Baghdad.

When you say your prayers tonight,

when you turn out the light

and close your eyes,

this is what

you should be saying to yourself,

"Latif Yahia is dead. He died in Iran.

"May God have mercy on him.

"Now I am Uday Saddam Hussein."

Guten Tag.

Take off your clothes, please.


One more time.

And one more time, please.

Uday is three centimeters taller.

We can use built-up shoes.

Look at that. He is perfect.

- Uday, this is boring.

- Shut up.

How can you sit here all night

looking at yourself?

- He looks great.

- He doesn't even look like you.


His cock's too big.

What do you mean, his cock is too big?

Uday's life story. Learn it.

Come on, come on, tell me.

Shape of face, hair, nose, physique,

all in the high 90s.

- Good.

- Your eyes are five millimeters bigger.

- They can use make-up.

- And the teeth? What about the teeth?

Two peas in a pod.

- I was just trying the teeth.

- Smile. Go on, smile.

No, no, no. Like this.

And do the hair. Do the hair.

You like the Rolex.

Keep it.

You look good in blue.

Yes, it definitely suits you.

Latif, hurry up.

- There's too much ice.

- Can I say blue is your color?

Shut up.

I like the way you fight.

You fight like me.

He fights like me.

I had a word with Dr. Linz.

He says your cock's too big.

We need to make a surgical reduction.

- A what?

- Chop a bit off.

- What?

- Not much.

Just a teeny-weeny.

Not much?

My cock is well-known in Baghdad.

The women, they talk.

I'm joking with you, you f*ck.
