All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • 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.

    September 23, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 9, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A humane portrait of a troubled household and, by extension, a troubled country.

    September 9, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • A good movie that could have been better, Joseph Cedar's sensitive Israeli drama falters when he trades sociological observations for political ones.

    September 9, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The timelier elements of Campfire, which cleared house at Israel's Academy Awards this year, are too salient to dismiss.

    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.
