Luxor....the film

Post by newcastle »

I watched this online. Cost me £10. Waste of money.

I enjoyed the scenery....it was obviously filmed entirely in and around Luxor.....but otherwise found it tedious and pretentious .

It was confusing at times....shacking up with your Egyptian boyfriend at the Winter Palace?? What is the world coming to :lol:

Without the synopsis I’d read beforehand, I wouldn’t have made head nor tale of the story. Actually...there isn’t a story. A garbled mish mash of weird seances on the West Bank and marijuana- fuelled dancing in - I kid you not - the Winter Palace bar! The female lead is a refugee worker on vacation and obviously having something of a mental breakdown. Probably not helped by the dope or the attentions of the male egyptologist.

The unlikely couple also partake of a joint while sitting in the inner sanctum of Luxor Temple. Disgraceful 8)

Nice to see Salima Ikram.....the only sane and believable character in an otherwise pointless bit of self-indulgent cinematography....possibly because she just plays herself.

We were in it, also just playing ourselves! (But haven't seen it yet.)

Saw a few European visitors/ expats particularly in the scenes shot at the Marsam

I do recall an elderly chap, in the background, gawping at Salima’s luncheon table and waving!😷

@DJKeefy

I wanted to post some screen shots I took of the film but get the message :

Any cure?
