During filming, the crew was warned off from a certain location in the city, due to its very Islamic population. The director decided to go anyway, and the day was spent mingling with people. She later called it 'one of the best days of her life'. See more »
The Everly Brothers' song "('Til) I Kissed You" is heard on the soundtrack when Juliette and Mark ride in the cab towards the end of the film. The song is incorrectly listed as "Then I Kissed Her" in the credits. See more »
Very well-cast crew. Incredibly perceptive and observant director. Took me back to Cairo. Alexander Siddiq is so cute in this movie. Its good to see a movie that does not follow the typical Hollywood American action crap with a climax and a happy ending.
This movie in my opinion was not a typical movie with a plot but more like a trip to Cairo. A sweet memorable trip very identical to my trip and experience there last year, minus the lovely Alexander..
Well done Rubba. Keep them coming... wouldn't mind watching a Granada time or Barcelona time..Beirut time or Istanbul or Kathmandu time...if u can do the same thing with those cities, u'r my hero...
