great movie, everybody should see it. A movie from another, better, world.

It's the most boring musical I have ever seen in my entire life. Can't believe it won in the Tony's. It is so dragging. Wasted my $150 bucks on this one.

Can understand the Broadway musical being a hit.

Sad little movie that keeps you watching; Arabs and Jews and in some way what could be and what it is. I liked the characters, their character and personalities. Very good.

A story defying expectations and a camera that is always at the right place make for a beautiful and clever bittersweet comedy.

Loved this. An Egyptian band gets lost in a small Israeli town. Full of pathos, but very funny too.

A nice Israeli film that was not heavy handed and ridiculously charming. Highly enjoyable.

The Band's Visit [Israel, 2007] Amazing how it outlines loneliness & cultural barriers through its cinematography, music & silence. 8/10

One of the oddest films to convey the will of human spirit; this mockumentary unfolds cultural inanities as a search for meaning, appreciation, and love in the moments of our life. This movie is certainly an international gem.

The Band's Visit is punctuated by steady cam shots of the barren desert in Israel. A band is on its way to perform at the Arab Cultural Center. They get stranded in the desert and taken in. The plot is slow moving, even for 1 hr 29 minutes of running time.

The Bands Visit starts off on a bizarre note and instantly makes you catch hold of the irony of the situation. The subtle humor and the nuances make this film a delight.

"Those who like their comedy, romance, and tragedy in quiet doses should enjoy this textured story."

This had been on my too watch list since it's release. Finally sat down and watched it today. It's a beautiful film that just encompasses everything I enjoy about film. A simple story is told in a deep and explorative fashion, its unpredictable and takes place in the course a single day. It also is a reminder of the little quirks and nuances that people share, despite their perceived cultural differences. Highly recommend this movie!
