Goofs

In the storyline, they are supposed to be visiting the sphinx/pyramids at dawn. The sun is shown low on the horizon, but clearly in the WEST, so the scene must have been shot at sunset. See more »

Great Feel-Good Movie
3 November 2009 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

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...
