Fucky Film Review!

The Band’s Visit

Eran Kolirin 2007

A quiet little movie about a police orchestra from Alexandria, Egypt waylaid in a small town in the negev desert in Israel.  The owner of the town’s only kiosk and restaurant takes it upon herself to see to it that the band is given food and shelter for a night while they wait for their embassy in Tel Aviv to send them transport to their intended destination.  Along the way there is some sexual and political tension.  It’s a well paced and well acted little film that doesn’t try to do too much (probably its best achievement).
