BWW Review: THE BAND'S VISIT at The Kennedy Center " A Magical Musical Full of HeartBWW Review: THE BAND'S VISIT at The Kennedy Center " A Magical Musical Full of Heart
by Charles Shubow - Jul 16, 2019

I really enjoyed the Eran Kolirin's 2007 Israeli-Egyptian film 'The Band's Visit' . The story involved the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra who get lost in Israel on their way to a concert performance at the Arab Cultural Center in a large city named Petal Tikvah and instead the bus they take arrives at the small town of Bet Hatikva. With the next bus not due until the next day, the musicians are invited to spend the night with the town natives (there is no hotel) and have dinner. The moving film tackles the subject of Egyptians and Israelis in 1996 who in 1967 had a hard-fought war on the Sinai Peninsula. (more...)
