The Band’s Visit
Directed by Eran Kolirin
The Band’s Visit is an Arabic-English-Hebrew-language comedy that follows the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra, an Egyptian musical ensemble that accidentally becomes stranded for the night in a small Israeli town. The Band’s Visit is amiable but meandering. Almost all of the film’s funniest scenes are in the beginning of the movie, and the second half, with a few scenes as notable exceptions, drags with neither great purpose nor amusement.
