Cairo Time ~ Charming

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I am going to talk about 'Cairo Time'! It's a movie that has been loafing around my Netflix Que for quite some time and I finally got around to watching it!

'Cairo Time' is a movie about an American woman who flies out to Cairo to meet up with her husband. Her husband works for the UN and is stuck in Gaza. Now the wife has all the time in the world, alone in Cairo. Well, not exactly alone. She soon befriends her husband's retired head of security. Plot ensues!

This is a rather quiet movie that has a lot of subtlety and finesse. I found it incredibly enjoyable!  They touch on some of the cultural differences and dangers of being a woman alone in Cairo. This adds some very mild seriousness to an otherwise easygoing movie. I was pulled right into the story and was captivated until the last second!


On top of the great story the cinematography is absolutely stunning! I've never been to Egypt, and I doubt I will anytime soon, therefore I love seeing what I can through cinema! I'm talking about sweeping, gorgeous views and beautiful sunset shots over the pyramids. Breathtaking to be sure!

Lastly, I would be deceiving you if I didn't say that one of the primary reasons I watched this movie was because of Alexander Siddig. He played the head of security and you may know him as Dr. Bashir from 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine'. Although that may be where I first encountered him, I really love his acting and I watch his work whenever I get the chance!

In conclusion, I recommend this movie! It's perfect for cuddling in with a cup of tea for a calm afternoon.

Kumea

Kumea (Koo-may) was a little girl. She was the age of ten and always wore pigtails clasped with a bright blue ribbon. Every morning Kumea woke up early, with the sun, and helped her mother tend to the rice farm in beautiful Japan. This farm year was different than all the others. The rice paddy was a sickly brownish yellow instead of bright lush green, and at night she would hear her parents talking about how the emperor would take their farm away if the weather didn’t change.

One morning Kumea was gathering water from the creek when she thought she heard movement in the forest behind her house. Kumea took a little cup, filled it with water, and carried it over to a small yellow flower behind a shed. Slowly she poured water on the flower like she had done for weeks when her mother wasn’t looking.

Just then a large cart approached the farmhouse with armored soldiers in it. Kumea peeked around the corner of the shed and watched the soldiers walk to her Father. The soldiers and her fa…

'B' and 'B'

'Brave' and 'Bernie'! Two movies that are similar in no way. Except, of course, they both start with 'B' and they have both been nominated for awards this year. As I'm sure you can guess, I am very excited about awards season. I am developing a mild case of Oscar frenzy. I want my favorites to win! In preparation, naturally, I have been watching a lot of the movies I have seen pop up at the awards shows that have already happened. I would have gotten around to them eventually, but the timing is too good!

First is 'Brave'! I have wanted to see this movie since the moment I heard is was going to exist. I love Disney-Pixar and their movies together. I'm a child at heart and I'm not sorry! Netflix took its sweet time getting 'Brave' sent to my mailbox but I finally saw it.  Boy was it more then I ever expected! I hadn't really looked into it that much. I saw the words Pixar and I knew I would watch it so there wasn't any reason to…
