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.

The fourth feature from Canadian writer-helmer Ruba Nadda ("Sabah") has a slightly breathless, old-fashioned feel, calling to mind the cliched fiction found in the type of ladies' magazine the heroine edits. Full Review

The time does pass agreeably enough, and if Cairo Time does not amount to much, it does evoke a wistful state of feeling and a complicated city with enough skill and sensitivity that you wish it had dared more. Full Review
