When they find their own ride, they arrive instead at the remote town of Beit Hatikva. Stuck there until the next morning’s bus, the band, lead by the repressed Tawfiq Zacharaya, gets help from the worldly lunch owner, Dina, who offers to put them up for the night. As the band settles in as best it can, each of the members attempts to get along with the natives in their own way. What follows is a special night of quiet happenings and confessions as the band makes its own impact on the town and the town on them.
Plot: A small Egyptian police band travels to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center, only to find themselves stuck in the wrong town.

The Band’s Visit is pure magic
Eran Kolirin is a name to watch out for. This film maker is simply brilliant. In the band’s visit he tells a quite simple story, but not without pulling a trick here and there and believe me, he’s not a one trick pony. Actor performances are subdued and very truthful making the movie a story of unpersued dreams that goes straight to the heart. It’s warm melancholy mood never gets heavy or painful cause it’s countered so wittily with scenes that make you smile from ear to ear. To top it all off there’s well chosen music, honest photography and clever camera direction. The Band’s visit tells of a classic mix-up, but without ever being cheap.
Really well done
A movie that should be getting lot more press.
Enjoyable and bit quirky to see the kinds of situations people get into, that are much like we may experience anywhere else in the world.
Others have laid out the plot well and nothing more needs to be said about how the story develops.
I found two scene in this movie the kind that one must remember, rather like the many one may recall from Bogart in Casablanca.
The exchange at the phone and the scenes at the skating rink are precious and very well acted.
This is a movie I recommend seeing and then putting into memory to come back and see again and again just for the pure pleasure of a well developed comedy.
