A successful woman must slow down to let love catch up to her in Cairo Time, starring Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson in the role of her career. Clarkson (Shutter Island, Pieces of April, The Station Agent) is Juliette, a busy New York fashion editor who travels to Egypt for a vacation with her husband, a UN official. When he gets tied down with business in Gaza, he sends his former security officer Tareq (Alexander Siddig, Clash of the Titans, 24, Syriana) to keep her company. As Tareq guides Juliette around the Egyptian capital, both realize they have journeyed to unexplored places in the heart. The award-winning Cairo Time is both a love letter to a city and a poignant romantic drama in the tradition of Brief Encounter and Lost in Translation.

  • Ruhige Momente

    Written on 03. February 2012 by hastalavista.
    This customer review refers to a alternative version.

    Eine ruhige Geschichte über eine Amerikanerin im reifen Alter, die sich für kurze Zeit in Kairo aufhält, wird hier erzählt. Während ihrem Aufenthalt entsteht eine kleine Romanze zwischen ihr und einem Ägypter. Fazit: Ohne Action, ohne offensichtliche Romanze, im fast unsichtbaren Stil wird der Flirt zwischen zwei Welten inszeniert. Die aparte P.Clarkson, mit ihrem distanzierten und dennoch vieldeutigen Blicken nähert sich ihrem Gegenüber, A.Siddig, mit seinem höflich-dezenten Wesen. Beide personifizieren Ihre Charakter spot on. Ich fand, trotz einiger kleiner Fauxpas, diesen Film erstaunlich entspannend, da er fast immer mit Blickkontakten und Körpersprache kommuniziert. Zugegen, für manche vielleicht zu ermüdend.
