Like After Watching This Movie

I just watched a movie called 'Cairo Time'.

It was some indie film that had been in my Netflix instant queue for a long time and I was saving it for a time when I was in the mood for a love story. Well, since that rarely happens, it stayed untouched for a long time. lol

But tonight I guess I felt like it was a good time to watch it. And I condemn my hormones for making that decision. (I'm on my period, which always makes me super emotional and sappy.) It was such a beautiful film. I didn't cry, but almost did! The story of an American woman who travels to Egypt to visit her husband, who works for the United Nations. When she gets there, expecting to be greeted by him, she is instead greeted by his Egyptian assistant.
He takes on the role as chaperone for her, since her husband is held up in another city and will not arrive for another week or two. There develops such a connection and bond between the wife and the assistant... they fall in love. But they never do anything inappropriate- both are too good for that. The tragedy and the romance lies in the fact that they are both so obviously burning for one another, but both too honorable to act on it.

It made me feel so odd. "Emotional and sappy" are the only words I can think of to describe it, but they don't accurately sum up the feeling in my spirit after watching that film. I dunno, I just can't explain it.
