About this movie

On a trip to Cairo, Juliette (Patricia Clarkson) is forced to fend for herself when her husband is unexpectedly delayed on UN business in Gaza.  As a woman alone in Cairo, she welcomes the company of Tareq (Alexander Siddig), her husband's quiet yet charming friend who has agreed to be her guide. Together, the two explore the city's chaotic bazaars and surrender to the charms of the Nile.  With Tareq by her side, Juliette discovers the magic of Cairo -- and more -- in this lyrical tale of two people who unexpectedly fall in love.

I have watched C.T. almost a dozen times....I never grow tired of it. Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig have charisma together and SHINE. THE haunting soundtrack, the romantic essence of old- time film , the panoramic scenes of Cairo....This movie tugs at my heart, leaves me breath less, and in Cairo along with these underrated film stars.....Female CANADIAN producer's first film, I just can't wait to get lost in Cairo Time again and hope she is ready soon with her next big-screen endeavor.
