A beautiful love/friendship film set in stunning Cairo.
The description and summary of this beautiful film has already been done by other reviewers on this site, but for me, Cairo Times was simply one of the best films I've seen in years. Amazing cinematography, music, acting, background, mood...I stand in awe of the writer and director, Ruba Nadda. I walked out of the film with everybody else I knew at the theatre, floating in pleasure. Thank you for such a great film - and now if only the soundtrack was available! Finally, I have never in my life reviewed a film on the web - but then, films like this don't come around too often. One final comment - it is such a gorgeous 'big' film, try and see it in a theatre.
