Format: DVD
Billed as a love story, Cairo Time is so much more. This independent film by Ruba Nadda is an intriguing, poignant, bittersweet story of how two people from different cultures come to know one another and are irresistably drawn together. Added to the mix are many of Ruba Nadda's own personal memories and experiences in Cairo, which make it all the more interesting. An enjoyable film with stellar acting from Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig, beautiful scenery and unforgettable music, Cairo Time is the well-deserved winner of Best Canadian Film at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Congratulations, Ruba! I look forward to the next one.

A lovely, slow-building romance set against the backdrop of Cairo. If you liked Lost in Translation, you'll love this movie. Just beautiful.

'Cairo Time' is one of those movies you will watch over and over again, and see new little nuances each time. The storyline is a romance, in the style of old Hollywood, and it is truly sweet. Filmed in the bustling city of Cairo, Egypt, 'Cairo Time' shows the intensity of this ancient city, with its mix of old and modern worlds. As you watch the movie you can't help noticing the scenery too. I won't tell you the storyline because I want you to see the film without any preconceived ideas. But I do have to say Canadian director Ruba Nadda didn't miss using those little touches that convey to the viewers the closeness of the two characters. My favourite moment was when 'Juliette' reaches for 'Tareq's' drink, and he lets her take a sip... an action that would never be taken between two acquaintances, but an action that shows the kind of intimacy one would see from two people in love. With excellent performances by Patricia Clarkson (Juliette) and Alexander Siddiq (Tareq), 'Cairo Time' reminds me of a classic film, Casablanca. It is a beautiful movie.

Format: DVD
Poignant and pleasantly beautiful, Cairo Time tells a well-worn story - Westerner finds romance and beauty in the seductive East - with a gentle, realist touch.

Juliette (Patricia Clarkson), a middle-aged Canadian journalist, is visiting Cairo for a long-planned vacation with her UN staff husband, Mark (Tom McManus). Mark is unexpectedly held up in the Gaza Strip, and Juliette ("Like Romeo and!" a character notes) is stranded in the hotel, so Marc sends his long-time colleague, Tareq (Alexander Siddig), to play host. The attraction between Tareq and Juliette, which is immediate and mutual, simmers for much of her visit - until building to an almost unbearable tension where, if you're like the PPCC, you may find yourself gnashing your teeth, tearing your hair out and begging these characters to just elope, for the love of God!

But Cairo Time, for all its golden-hued panoramas of sunsets over pyramids, late-night wedding parties and curling hookah smoke, never gives in to the film fantasy urge - and the two star-cross'd lovers must remain firmly grounded in reality. Unlike other doomed couples o' the souq - Bogie and Ingrid, Ralph and Kristen - Juliette and Tareq are doomed by their pragmatism. And it is this realism - that you can't just drop everything and run off with the gorgeous, slinky foreigner, even if there's nothing you'd rather do - that accentuates the beauty and common tragedy of this very plausible love story.
