The much-acclaimed 2007 film from Israeli director Eran Kolirin centers on a band of Egyptian musicians -- the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra -- who end up in Israel's back-of-beyond after a booking mistake. The error turns out to be a blessing, as the Arabs and their initially reluctant Israeli hosts begin to see each other in new lights.
