      Audience Member Actually impressive. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member De las peores películas que he visto últimamente. Se ha vendido como "gran" cine israelí pero es mala, mala. Un guión pésimo, situaciones que llegan al ridículo, actores que no son actores y muchos de los defectos del cine de Gitai llevados al extremo. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member "If you want to survive, you must forget"...this was definitely worth seeing, and I'd especially recommend it to those interested in the politics of identity and the nation-state. For me, this was especially well-timed since I'd just completed a research project on the 1948 partition and war. Also: the dialogue is great. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member it's great, i saw it 5 months ago while i was doing a homework about Israel's wall. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member quite an amazing film. different than what i expected. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Stupid people at war. Always complaining for justice, but doing the same to their ennemies. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Stephen Holden New York Times For all its provocation, Kedma is an often dull, incoherent film, and its characters remain frustratingly sketchy. Rated: 2/5 Feb 6, 2003 Full Review J. Hoberman Village Voice Mesmerizingly bad filmmaking. Jan 16, 2003 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid The characters prove nothing more than patchy sketches and the drama simply evaporates. May 26, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 21, 2005 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Apesar do ritmo irregular e dos personagens mal delineados, oferece uma viso complexa e polmica sobre o longo conflito entre judeus e rabes, o que me leva a recomend-lo. Rated: 4/5 Jun 7, 2004 Full Review Leslie Katz The film's "message" treated with such a heavy hand, that it'd almost be manipulative - if it weren't ultimately boring.
