Movie Info

Set seven days before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, a small rusted ship with a group of survivors from Shoah is welcomed to the new territory by the shooting of British troops trying to forbid them from disembarking and by the shooting of the Jewish secret army who has come to help them. Only a small group actually succeeds in landing on the beach, to experience their first hours in Palestine.

For all its provocation, Kedma is an often dull, incoherent film, and its characters remain frustratingly sketchy.

Mesmerizingly bad filmmaking.

The characters prove nothing more than patchy sketches and the drama simply evaporates.

Apesar do ritmo irregular e dos personagens mal delineados, oferece uma visão complexa e polêmica sobre o longo conflito entre judeus e árabes, o que me leva a recomendá-lo.

Seems slow and aimless for half of its running time, but the last stretch is riveting and thought-provoking.

The film's "message"...is treated with such a heavy hand, that it'd almost be manipulative - if it weren't ultimately boring.

While minimalist in its presentation, the film becomes nearly operatic in its intensity.

Gitai has made a quirky film about the origins of the state of Israel that provides insights into the source of present day Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Whether you agree with Gitai's views or not, the film's flaws make watching Kedma an unpleasant chore.

A pedestrian, unexciting drama.

This poor-man's 'Exodus' brings to life the struggle of an illegal shipment of Jews to Palestine just weeks before the declaration of the State of Israel.
