The Troupe

Directed by: Avi Nesher
112 Minutes, 1979, Comedy; Drama; Musical

This offbeat musical directed by Avi Nesher follows a dozen members of the military entertainment troupe, whose mission is to entertain the Israeli Army following the Six Day War in 1967. Although the performers are not at the front lines, they, too, suffer tensions, learning to get along, making and breaking romances—all while competing to become the best performer in the troupe and to receive coveted television coverage.
