Juliette, a fashion magazine editor in her 40s, travels to Cairo to meet her husband, Mark, a UN official working in Gaza, for a three week vacation. When he is unavoidably delayed, he sends his friend Tareq, who had been his security officer for many years, to escort her throughout the beautiful and exotic city. The last thing anyone expects is that they will fall in love. CAIRO TIME is a romantic drama about a brief, unexpected love affair that catches two people completely off-guard.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Confirms two things that hardly need confirming: The Egyptian capital is a breathtaking metropolis, and Patricia Clarkson is one of the best actors in the world.
Rotten: The movie isn't sure what, politically or even romantically, it's about.
Fresh: Clarkson proves what her fans have known forever: She's ready for the spotlight. With luck she'll stay there for a while.
Beautiful story, beautiful characters, dreamy landscape... The turquoise dress flowing in the sweet warm breeze and the pyramids at sunset. Need I say more?
The pace is slow, very little happens, and it's utterly wonderful. Idyllic.
Cairo a nice city for romance
I saw this movie on the plan. It is a smooth romance .
I like the scenes of Cairo and the oriental songs.
I would see it again with my wife.
