The Band's Visit (Bikur Hatizmoreth)
Dir/scr: Eran Kolirin. Is/Fr. 2007. 85 mins.This melancholy deadpan comedy accepted in three out of Cannes' four official sections and finally running in Un Certain Regard, is a kind of prestidigitator's tightrope act, almost crashing down several times before triumphantly reaching its goal in one piece.
