Cairo Time (2009) (C)
Vanessa Farquharson, The National Post.
On a trip to Cairo, Juliette (Patricia Clarkson) is forced to fend for herself when her husband is unexpectedly delayed on UN business in Gaza.
As a woman alone in Cairo, she welcomes the company of Tareq (Alexander Siddig), her husband's charming friend who has agreed to be her guide.
Together, the two explore the city's chaotic bazaars and surrender to the temptation of the Nile.
With Tareq by her side, Juliette discovers the magic of Cairo - and more - in this lyrical tale of two people who unexpectedly fall in love. -- (C) Mongrel Media, 2009, Canada/Ireland/Egypt.
