"Sweet, funny & hopeful." - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
Israeli filmmaker Eran Kolirin?s debut feature, is a subtle, heartfelt, and humane work that goes a long way toward dissolving the incredibly complex cultural divide that continues to plague the Middle East. When the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra flies from Egypt to Israel to perform at the opening of an Arab culture center, they are left stranded at the airport. Their leader, Tewfiq, orders the handsome violinist, Khaled, to solve their predicament, but it turns out that he?s gotten the wrong information. By that time, it?s too late. All eight members are left standing alone in a quiet desert town far from their intended destination with no way to get where they need to go. Over the course of the night, Khaled helps a hapless local discover his inner Romeo, and the other band members find themselves caught up in a domestic situation that is less than perfect. Rated PG-13. 89 minutes. Arabic with subtitles.
