Critic Reviews for Campfire
It's a story about sexism and inequalities, and were it not for its hokey ending, the film would've gained even more international recognition.
Israeli films in general constitute dissenting voices against the established order by championing individual aspirations. Still, Mr. Cedar's own background makes him an unusual candidate for the role of dissenter.
Beyond casting a jaundiced eye at the community's oppressive communalism, Campfire neither endorses nor opposes the settler movement that since 1981 has become an incendiary issue in Israel.
A humane portrait of a troubled household and, by extension, a troubled country.
A good movie that could have been better, Joseph Cedar's sensitive Israeli drama falters when he trades sociological observations for political ones.
Audience Reviews for Campfire
A true gem that is not easily found. If you do come across it, give it a play. An honest and chilling depiction of life in Israeli settlement communities.
