You may never see Cairo the same way again after it plays itself in Ruba Nadda's low-key thwarted romance.

There's a definite Lost-in-Translation'y vibe to this, coupled with amazing shots of both the city and people of Cairo. Beautifully filmed and superbly acted.

The lovely twilit moments in this movie stay with one, and that summoning them up in your mind is like slowing down time.

This is a film where the promise of romance is almost as important as the romance itself. And perceptively gliding through it, Clarkson and her intricate yet simple approach is a quiet sensation.

Cairo Time's narrative is manna for the menopausal, but, at the very least, worthy for the rest.

Not much happens in "Cairo Time," and it doesnt happen in slow, languid fashion.

What makes Cairo Time work stems from the playing of the leads and the manner in which Nadda presents the setting.

...has at its heart the mildest kind of dalliance, a betrayal so small and excusable it mightn't even register.

Clarkson, in one of her few leading roles, is the film's bright spot and reason for seeing the film.
September 23, 2010
Clarkson, as always, is genuine and terrific.

It's hard to call Cairo Time a "romance." Really, what it is is one of the rare realistic movies about attraction.
September 10, 2010
Clarkson not only anchors Nadda's film, but she lifts it up onto her shoulders, carrying it along and helping it become an emotional and thoughtful story of one woman's journey of self-discovery.

Flirtation is often sexier than consummation. There's a constant 'should I or shouldn't I' tension that gives a tale some spine.
September 3, 2010
The picturesque romantic travelogue...is as obvious but elegant as the bit of symbolism that ends it.
September 2, 2010
A sumptuous feast for heart, head, eye and ear.

Clarkson lights up Ruba Nadda's stately drama Cairo Time like the moon on a summer night, making every moment luminous with quiet, resigned longing.
September 2, 2010
The at-times slow and indulgent pacing of Cairo Time will frustrate a few viewers, even if the Egyptian landmarks and scenery is stunning.
August 28, 2010
Between [Clarkson and Siddig], they make Cairo Time a much more involving, lingering experience than it it probably deserves to be.
