DVD of the week

Visiting musicians: The 2007 Israeli film The Band's Visit (PG-13) is a touching story of 8 Egyptian musicians from the Egyptian Police Force who travel to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab cultural center.

After landing in the wrong town, the musicians discover some local hospitality along with some challenges and self-discoveries.

There is some English but it's mostly Arabic and Hebrew subtitles. It's definitely worth watching and a nice respite from the action/bang-em-up movies currently playing at the theater. Plus, you can watch it at home.
