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.
The timelier elements of Campfire, which cleared house at Israel's Academy Awards this year, are too salient to dismiss.
Wraps up rather abruptly and a little too neatly, but Campfire still roars effectively.
Succeeds because Cedar skillfully develops his narrative, and he is ably helped by a strong cast led by Eshet and fine production
Released as the settlements on the Gaza Strip were being dismantled, Cedar's film offers a refreshing new perspective of them and a sly critique of their origins.
A 'little film' about loneliess and the difficult ability to love and to trust --but at the same time more universal than the shifting tide of nations' concerns.
The half-baked, curiously optimistic ending is frustrating, but otherwise this is a moving, beautifully acted picture.
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.
