Adama Meshuga’at aka Sweet Mud (2006, Dror Shaul)

Categories: 2006 and Movies.

This is an affecting coming of age drama about what it was like to grow up on an Israeli Kibbutz in the seventies with a single mother. All the performances are strong and they help take the very loose narrative to a greater level of pathos. I can’t imagine what it would have been like living in one of these pseudo-utopian communities where, surprise surprise, people continue to be people and xenophobia (or, rather, the general disregard for the “other”) is allowed to run rampant. Well worth watching.
8/10
