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
As in David Lean's "Brief Encounter," the suspense in Cairo Time comes from what doesn't happen between its pair of "lovers." 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.
had a hard time not looking at my watch, and its only an hour and a half..good acting....but SLOW
