MUBI's take

Featuring a transformative performance from the enchanting Patricia Clarkson, Ruba Nadda’s romantic drama is a transnational affair that unravels with endearing charm and stirring wistfulness. The splendor of Egypt is in full bloom, alternating between urban restlessness and poignant tranquility.
