The Ceremonial Police Band of Alexandria, Egypt, journeys to a gig in Israel but gets lost on the way. So begins this fish-out-of-water comedy, ?The Band's Visit?. Lost in a small desert town, the group accepts an invitation from a sexy caf? owner to bunk at her residence. Unexpected romance and funny situations develop between the Israeli community and their Egyptian guests. This is a moving and amusing story about the universal bonds that unite us despite our differences.
If this film does not delight and touch you, maybe you should have your heart examined. - Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
