Irm and I watched an excellent movie last night titled “Cairo Time”. The movie tells the story of Juliette, a fashion magazine editor in her 50s, who 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.
What I enjoyed the most about this movie is its authenticity. The people, the music, the and the culture all drew a very realistic picture of the city. It really adds to the movie, and especially to the ending.
