Combustible Celluloid

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

Mesmerizingly bad filmmaking.

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

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

A pedestrian, unexciting drama.

Film Journal International

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

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

Spirituality and Practice

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.

Cinema em Cena

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.

Compuserve

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.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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