  • It's a haunting and hypnotic film. show more

  • The melancholic, beautiful Cairo Time confirms two things that hardly need confirming: The Egyptian capital is a breathtaking metropolis, and Patricia Clarkson is one of the best actors in the world. show more

  • Ms. Clarkson's performance as Juliette, the fashion-writer wife of a United Nations functionary, is the film's reason for being. She makes yearning palpable. She turns mysterious silences into a language of love. show more

    Well intentioned but honestly the 2 leads, who are both talented, were like cardboard cutouts with little to do but demonstrate their repressed longing for one another.

    A beautiful little gem of a movie. Romatic travelogue to Egypt with great acting by lead actor and actress. The culture , emotions, contemplation, romance, danger and mystique, music..is all a big part of why I enjoyed it. It is pure escapist entertinment and had a realistic ending. Just a nice film all together.
