Movie Info

Dvir (Tomer Steinhof) lives on a progressive kibbutz with his older brother, Eyal, (Pini Tavger) and their mother, Miri (Ronit Yudkevitz). Miri is mentally ill, has spent time in an institution and is not particularly liked by the other members of their commune. Things get even worse when Miri invites her boyfriend (Henri Garcin), a non-Jew, to move in. Meanwhile, Dvir is busy studying for his Bar Mitzvah, which proves to be a particularly arduous task.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • An appealing coming-of-age tale that takes on the difficult issues of mental illness and conformity.

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • If [director] Shaul means for his indictment to have some contemporary resonance, to hint at conformist pressures in the current Israeli state, he fails to give us any of the blocks needed to build that thesis.

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a film from the heart, from a firsthand familiarity that yields conflicted emotions over the gap between an ideal and its realization.

    January 19, 2007
  • A tendency toward broad novelistic storytelling... robs Sweet Mud of a focus.

    September 20, 2006
  • The plot may sound familiar, but director/writer Dror Shaul makes it fresh with his vivid and often bitterly funny depiction of the film's setting, a kibbutz in the 1970s.

    March 22, 2016 | Full Review…
  • If the film is an indictment of anything it is how the collective experience of the kibbutz is at odds with family loyalties.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Mud

    A decent story of a mother and son who have a not-so-great existence in a kibbutz system. A good depiction of how sometimes the strongest communities can effectively abandon one of their own.
