THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO – chez nous, in the ‘private cinema’














































How could I not have seen this wonderful film before? Good lord it had me laughing and weeping at the same time. So tender. So sweet. So damning for someone like me in a way, always drawn, so much more, just like Mia Farrow, to the imaginary and the fantastical, than the ‘real’.




What fun though to watch it with people you want to be with on a Sunday night;  in the dark, in your private cinema –  with wine, and chocolate, and the screen.

  1. One of my favourite, favourite films! Happy you enjoyed it too!

  2. I love that film. I need to watch it again soon.

  3. Sounds like such a wonderful night. When I eventually make my way to Japan I would love to do one of these evenings with you, Duncan and some of your friends.
    Was there any fragrance sniffing involved? What scent do you think Mia would have worn in the movie?

  4. Marina

    I loved it when we watched Carrie in there.
