Opinion

From Library Staff

One of the most adult, intelligent, and realistic films about love in ages. This film takes its time with everything: the story, the characters, and the attraction between one married person and one single yet emotionally scarred person.

A quick jaunt across the Mediterranean Sea from Greece takes us to Egypt, where this true hidden gem is set. Part travelogue, but mostly unrequited love story, this one you might not have heard of. You need to rectify that immediately.

Rated 2/10. Very slow and meandering movie. Scenery was interesting.

Pleasant movie, enjoyed the scenery, costumes, music and wedding scene. Not much of a story and I'm glad it ended the way it did.

This comment might contain a spoiler - Refreshingly complex study of attraction that doesn't result in the standard torrid affair.

Slow, sort of a love / romance story, but it seemed that it was mostly about the scenery in Egypt. At least it wasn't a Hollywood romance.

A very enjoyable movie. The sights in the movie were breath taking! The woman and man had chemistry. The costumes were very original. The music flowed through out the movie on a peaceful wave!

Less a story than a TRAVEL DOC for Egypt and Cairo.
I'm sad to say that that was how I enjoyed the film and the story merely got in the way of sumptuous sight-seeing.

sadly, I didn't like this movie as much as I wanted to. Patrica Clark and Alexander Siddig were great to look at but the simmering was barely breaking bubbles on the surface.
