Cairo Time Reviews
To some extent the movie is about a woman traveling alone in an Islamic country, her own vulnerability in the face of on-street harassment as a white woman in an Egyptian world, the subtle development of a friendship between two temporarily lonely persons mixed in with an exotic environment and the cultural differences that both attract her and some which threaten her. Will this friendship lead to something more? Watch it to find out.
Patricia Clarkson, Alexander Siddig, Amina Annabi, Elena Anaya, and Tom McCamus stars. Definitely worthy!
I loved the "forbidden", tempered relationship that develops between Juliette and Alexander. Alexander used to work for Juliette's husband in the U. N. and takes the unofficial role of tour guide for Juliette throughout Cairo. Even though they come from different backgrounds, they find some commonality. Alexander takes pleasure in Juliette's wonder and appreciation for Egypt and this becomes the heart of the movie.
This was a fairly short movie, coming in under 90 minutes.
