Cairo Time 'could encourage holidays to Egypt'

The movie follows a magazine editor from New York who develops a bond with an Egyptian security guard while staying in the country's capital.

Reviewing the film, which stars Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig, Steven Rea of the Philadelphia Inquirer noted that it does a good job of showcasing Cairo, "with its broad river and baking temperatures, its mosques and markets, its mix of ancient and modern, East and West".

"Part of the great joy to be taken from Cairo Time is in watching these two strangers as they stroll the streets of a remarkable city," the critic added.

For people who want to have their own experience of Cairo, The Adventure Company's Jewels of the Nile trip visits the famous city, along with Luxor and Aswan.

Travellers move between the destinations on a felucca ship which travels down the Nile.
