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.

Top Critic

Mesmerizingly bad filmmaking.

January 16, 2003
Village Voice
Top Critic

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

Combustible Celluloid

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.

Cinema em Cena

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

May 10, 2004
Montreal Film Journal

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

(****): [img][/img] The best Israeli film I've seen yet. Extremely well-made and a powerful experience.
