Monday, 22 March 2010

Eran Kolirin. Israel/France/USA. 2007. 87 mins. Sub-titles. Cert 12A.

The Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra travels into Israel to fulfil a concert engagement, but ends up in the wrong place. The cross-culture meeting of Egyptian musicians and a remote Israeli town’s inhabitants makes for a charming feel-good comedy, with some wonderful performances and a message of peace, hope and understanding.
