REVIEW: Cairo Time

The REEL Addict has our first review of Cairo Time, set to debut Sunday, September 13 at the Toronto International Film Festival:

This is essentially a modern updating of Noel Coward’s play Still Life, which became the basis for BRIEF ENCOUNTER, written by Coward and directed by David Lean.  The acting of the two leads Clarkson and Siddig is uniformly excellent as is the cinematography by Luc Montpellier.  The story is a little slow and aimless off the top, and Nadda’s direction can occasionally be stilted, but it comes together nicely and gently builds to a subtle but deeply-felt climax.

About Mel

Mel started a fan site for Siddig in 1996, as a way to learn HTML and to promote his charitable endeavors. In 1998, he proposed that it become his official fan site; she quickly agreed and a long-distance friendship was born. You can reach Mel at mel[at]sidcity[dot]net.
