      Nell Minow AWFJ.org Andrea Riseborough conveys what her character is not able to say with a beautifully sensitive performance in the midst of timeless antiquities. Jan 10, 2022 Full Review Ryan Lattanzio indieWire A movie that captures the gut-ache of ruminating on lost love, and the pain of an expiration date hanging over a brief encounter that maybe doesn't have to end. Rated: B Feb 21, 2021 Full Review Pamela Hutchinson Sight & Sound An apparently slight, but deeply rewarding film, Luxor reveals its purpose slowly, in fragments of growing significance. Feb 21, 2021 Full Review Ruth Maramis FlixChatter Film Blog The reunion story set in the ancient Egyptian city is promising, alas Andrea Riseborough's immense talent is pretty much wasted in this meandering and tedious movie. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 3, 2023 Full Review Victoria Luxford City AM Luxors thoughtful tone and leisurely pace wont be for everyone, but London-born filmmaker Durra has crafted a character study that rewards those who pay attention. Rated: 4/5 Feb 26, 2022 Full Review Sandie Angulo Chen AWFJ.org Andrea Riseborough is a brilliant actress, and she gives a memorable performance in Luxor as Hana.

      ThomasMoore N Slow and confusing opening. Who is she? Where are we? Who is they guy in the bar she sleeps with? Why? Who is the guy she meets from her past. They look alike. Is he the same guy? Why do I care? Is there a snack in the fridge? What were the critics thinking to rate this at 93%? I'm with the audience at 34%. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Themostancient The movie might as well have been filmed in the Luxor airport. It was just dull, flat, dismal with a few promising flashes and an over-the-top scene that was more laughable than dramatic. It gets one and a half stars for production values...the camera operator did keep the camera in focus and the actors visible. I enjoy and own a wide variety of films and directors, ranging from art house to schlock, by the way, so it's not like I was disappointed by the lack of a chase, etc.. The film we saw prior to this was the oddly paced but interesting Waiting for the Barbarians, which was far, far better than this, Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Luxor (2020): Surgeon from war zone on R&R in Egypt reconnects with her former lover, an archaeologist. He lives in past. She is traumatized by her work in the present. Very slow, meandering movie. Movie is a treat for tourists who have visited Luxor and its temples and tombs. B- Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent film. An intriguing story about a doctor, Hana, and a former lover that she runs into in Luxor, Egypt. She's on furlough from practicing medicine in a war zone. Hana is physically and emotionally exhausted from the horrific work and things she saw. As she visits one of the ruins, the tour guide asked the question, " How do we conquer our own inner demons? The story evolves as if you are walking beside her. The photography is close up and you can feel the surrounding ruin. The relationships feel real. The ending is bewitching. This film is a jewel. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Without doubt the worst film I've ever watched. My wife walked out half way through it was so turgid. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review wendy b If you want to pass the time watching a travel movie that takes place in Egypt, then go for it. The sights are beautiful. Otherwise, there is no actual story. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
