Cairo Time

Juliette Grant (Patricia Clarkson) travels to Cairo to visit with her UN-employed and absent husband. There, she is escorted around by his former colleague (Alexander Siddig), and the two feel a slight romantic spark as they wander about Cairo's attractions. This is an unhurried drama about two people who are happy to bask in their mutual attraction, not act on it. The tension between Clarkson and Siddig is restrained to a fault. However, the duo simply enjoying each other's company lends itself well to sumptuous shots of strolling amidst the heat and splendours of the city (the photography is exquisite). There isn't much drama to get caught up in, but there is a lot to enjoy in Cairo Time. –Hillary Titley
