Watch out for Sweet Mud in Sundance

"Sweet Mud" is the highest scoring film in Israel this year and one of the foreign films contenders.
It is rumored to be selected for Berlin Panorama. Could well be the sweet surprise hit of next year"
Bruno Chatelin

Sweet Mud: (Israel, 2006, 97 Minutes, color) has been written and directed by Dror Shaul

While the Israeli kibbutz has been idealized as a paragon of utopian movements, Sweet Mud tells a darker, more nuanced tale of a community ill equipped to cope with individuality and deviations from a rigidly defined norm, and of an adolescent boy stretching to compensate for what the collective cannot provide.

Amidst lush fields and the idyllic landscape of a kibbutz in 1974, 12-year-old Dvir is entering his bar mitzvah year--a time for many initiations and trials. Dvir's father is dead, his brother is away in the army, and his mother, Miri, suffers from emotional instability. While the collective handles the practical needs of every family, the intangible moral support one expects from a close-knit cooperative is scarce, and Dvir is left to care for beautiful, fragile Miri. When Miri's kindly boyfriend, Stephan, arrives from Switzerland, it seems that Miri, blissfully in love, may actually recover. But the "kibbutzniks," already resentful of a "noncontributing" guest, cast Stephan out after he tussles with another resident to defend Dvir. The loss shatters Miri--and Dvir must pick up the pieces.

Vividly capturing the vagaries of '70s kibbutz life with gorgeous, glowing camerawork, Sweet Mud is the painful coming of age of a child who marshals all his resources to nurture his own parent. The story also becomes a wrenching allegory for the casualties of any society that fails to tend to its members' vulnerabilities.— Caroline Libresco
