Sensual movie, and if there had been a sex scene or any indication that they had had sex it would have ruined it for me. I thought the fact that she honored her marriage enough to not go to bed was delightful, yet at the same time she broke a promise (as far as she would go)to go to the pyramids with her husband, and instead goes with Tariq. This was her method of telling Tariq that she loves him, and that going to the pyramids was an experience that only they would share. Part of the charm was that this woman could not believe that she was still attractive as an older sophisticated woman. The bond between both characters was not mere sexual mystique, but it was an emotional intellectual bon
Simply a beautiful romance. Would appreciate maybe 1-2 more hug or stroke to make it even more burning. Both of them excellent performance. Amazing scenes from Cairo. Hey part 2 in Istanbul? Reunion of Julliete and Tareq after her husband died or smth :)))
I liked how long it took them to fall in love. In movies these days they meet and after five minutes say "let's go to bed." So I waited patiently as their passions gradually built up, but I don't think they ever "dit it." If their had been even the suggestion of a sex scene, I would have given the movie 5 stars.
Great love story and great acting. Siddig did an outstanding job in his role. Would love to see a "Cairo Time" follow up movie. That would really put the icing on the cake.
Travelogue with a romantic twist. I wish I could interest her in my novel: "My Yankee Family Lost and Found" that could be an ideal for a screenplay. Jerzy
Juliette was very naive for a middle aged, UN workers long-time wife, but I found her character charming. Gracious and highly watchable. I loved the film from beginning to end. I visit Cairo a great deal and this film took me there. Everything very authentic. Sorry for all those out there who probably only appreciate unrealistic "action" "special effects" movies. But this was a story - subtle and believable. Well directed, well acted.
a perfect movie for self-absorbed silly canadians who enjoy self-absorbed silly movies....also a perfect opportunity to drag out the "subtle defence" think they understand the meaning of subtlety
there is not a person on the planet who has not had a more profound moment in the vegetable isle in any grocery store in any city on any day than "the subtle experience expressed in this movie".
This was a very slow moving movie with nothing much happening, perhaps the star was trying to give a feeling of extreme heat, fatigue and boredom,
Horrible movie. Clarkson was posing all through it. The whole thing was BORING!!!!!!!!
