Movie Info

Originally a student film by director Raphi Bukaee, this insightful comic look at the futility of war was expanded into its current 84-minute running time to good advantage. The story centers on two Egyptian soldiers (Suheil Hadad and Salim Daou) who are lost in the Sinai desert at the end of the Six-Day War. They must somehow find their way back to the Suez Canal without being captured by Israeli troops or succumbing to heat and dehydration. Presented as a series of vignettes, how the two inventive soldiers face each new challenge is hilarious and/or entertaining. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

All Critics (1)

A true must-see is writer/director Rafi Bukace's digitally restored Avanti Popolo from 1986. This often-hilarious antiwar tale with devastating twinges chronicles two hapless Egyptian soldiers trying to get home to Cairo after the Six-Day War ends.
