ביקור התזמורת/The Band’s Visit

[Screenshot]The Band’s Visit is a sweet little movie roughly right in scope and length for its story. It’s not overambitious, but it tells a solid and realistically effecting story. The characters come to life easily and believably, and in a way that steers clear of too many muddying issues (a story about Israeli-Egyptian contact could be a lot more political, for instance). This film doesn’t Raise Issues, as it were, but it manages to work between the cracks on issues to tell a good solid finite story.
