Si no fuera por la gran Patricia Clarkson y por la fascinante -por lo menos en el filme- ciudad del Cairo, el más reciente largometraje de la cineasta canadiense Ruba Nadda no pasaría de ser un mero telefilmeSi no fuera por la gran Patricia Clarkson y por la fascinante -por lo menos en el filme- ciudad del Cairo, el más reciente largometraje de la cineasta canadiense Ruba Nadda no pasaría de ser un mero telefilme romántico. Pero con esos escenarios y con esta actriz, nada de eso. Además, hay que admitir que la señora Nadda dirige con solvencia esta sobria historia de amor nunca consumada. Expand

One reviewer's reference to "Brief Encounter" is apt: So much hinges on what may be left unsaid and undone. Enjoyable as long as you're not expecting much drama.

Enjoyable as long as you're not expecting much drama. The atmospherics of Cairo were quite entrancing -- though they seemed sanitized compared to what's gone on there recently and the revelations of how threatened women are, even walking down the street fully covered. I'm a big fan of Patricia Clarkson, in everything from "The Station Agent" to old "Frasier" reruns; she wraps up warmth, humor, strength and loneliness in one delicate package. In this, she's looking a bit wan and wizened . . . but does a good job keeping you wondering whether she will break from her usual moral code or not. Expand

Really beautiful, lush, intoxicating film. Seductive and inviting. I loved it and recommend it to anyone who is a fan of beautiful, artful filmmaking. http://poppingpictures.blogspot.com/2010/09/timing-is-everything.html
