This is a charming little movie that got a bit of an Oscar push last year. The film is about an Egyptian band who has been asked to play traditional songs at an Arab Cultural Center in a town in Israel. Unfortunately for them, they end up in the wrong town and have to spend the night. The band is split into three groups and each spends the night with an Israeli host.
Over the course of the night, they each find their own transcendent moments. Of course, the overall point is that people are people, no matter what the political nonsense. It is funny, sad, and mellow. And it looks damn good to boot.
