- Film review
An Israeli film where most of the characters are Egyptian is something other than ordinary.
When an Egyptian police band gets stuck in a small Israeli town there are all the ingredients for a comedy of errors. Stranded, with little money the eight men who are more musicans than police, spend a night with the locals. The closeness of strangers is evident as the quaint and old fashioned band members interact with their Israeli hosts.
The Band’s Visit has been collecting a string of film festival awards. Worthy of everyone of them.
