Once-not long ago-a small Egyptian police band arrived in Israel. Not many remember this... It wasn't that important. A band comprised of members of the Egyptian police force head to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center, only to find themselves lost in the wrong town.

First of all, this movie's hilarious. The humour isn't laugh out loud funny but very witty and subtle. No matter how different your background the emotions we all feel sre the same, I liked the way the movie conveyed this message. I liked the message the movie was trying to convey, it wasn't trying to shove it in your face but you understand through the way the characters interact. Just like the town itself, this movie's very peaceful and you feel far removed from everything while watching it. My one complaint would be: I wish there was some sort of resolution for the multiple storylines but just like in real life all the people you meet don't have to have some grand purpose in your life. This movie isn't epic and neither is it trying to be but I would rewatch it if I want a funny and thoughtful movie to watch.
