  3. Gavenin's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  4. Christophe's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Il suffit d'un peu de bleu égyptien d'un peu d'ocre Israelien pour apporter les plus belles couleurs aux personnages qui composent cette fanfare. Très beau film

  5. Didonne's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Un très bon film, plein d'humour, dans le désert étrangement construit d'Israël. Les uniformes bleus de la fanfare égyptienne sont égarés en pays inconnu. Resteront-ils au bord de la route ? Une jolie fable dans laquelle l'hospitalité domine le conflit israélo-palestinien.

  6. Ludovic72's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    La poésie douce-amère se dégageant de ce périple désertique et tragi-comique, fait penser à du Jacques Tati sous influence israélo-égyptienne... Egarés dans une "zone" franchement morose, les musiciens croisent d'autres solitudes et la rencontre se révèle bénéfique. Trop naïf sans doute et parfois trop statique, ce récit délivre toutefois de beaux messages et les acteurs s'avèrent touchants.

  7. Aaken's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Humorous film, which leaves the audience to wish for this space and time where boundaries could be erased - especially now... Absurd, nonsensical and profoundly humane.

  8. Katherine Lo's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Not bad, but not great - lack drama.

  9. Crina Cătălina's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  10. alimcintyre's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Poignant comedy of manners, finely acted. The embarrassment is tangible.

  11. Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Combining some widely beloved tunes and a touching cinematography, this film managed to capture the poetic escence of loneliness, without any forced optimism, just letting it glow with its sad magic. I was shocked to find out that Ronit Elkabetz died less than a week ago. What a loss for cinema! She was magnetic.

  12. PanelSystem's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Trying for deadpan, sometimes broad, the small scale depiction of a middle-of-nowhere Israeli town divorced from culture and peopled by characters struggling to relate to one another has its poignance. That Dina (kind of) pursues Tawfiq strains credibility - surely not, even as the acting out of a childhood fantasy? But perhaps the lack of easy (or any) resolution is the strength of these quiet vignettes.

  13. Nick Stamp's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  14. nic's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    What a film! perfectly balances humour, drama, some great characters to culminate in a tour de force of the human being

  15. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Naturalism at it's most - well, natural. Resists the temptations of the Western narrative for a more solid and human story. Fantastically awkward.

  16. Ursula Bree's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  17. Sam Care's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  18. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    Fantastic. Sardonic and languid, a warm tale of making unexpected connections. Time slows down for a while.

  19. anwoody's rating of the film The Band's Visit

  20. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film The Band's Visit

    "Under eternal sun our forgotten days are gathered...If I were to live my life again, I wouldn't change an instant". Tender & tragic, funny & fragile. Poetic beauty. Really enjoyed this film.
