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.

Critic Reviews for Kedma

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

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

Feb 6, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

Mesmerizingly bad filmmaking.

Jan 16, 2003

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.

Jun 7, 2004 | Rating: 4/5

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

May 10, 2004 | Rating: 44/100

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