    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.

    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.

    Out of the context of Egypt and Israel's historical feud, this succinct awards-winning film (87 minutes) debut from Eran Kolirin may seem to be a prosaic essay about an unfulfilled romance with a few light touches on the quotidian lives in a rural Israeli town through the eyes of a band composed of members of the Egyptian Police Force from Alexandria, who are invited for a cultural event in Petah Tiqva. read rest of my review here: http://wp.me/p1eXom-1oN

    Sweet, funny and poignant. Worth seeing over and again.

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