ReviewSource Variety
Review The Candide-like farm boy hero of Eyal Shiray's extreme coming-of-age fable, "Comrade," runs away to the city where he vicariously explores sex through his sister and politics through a feisty old Communist with a hidden agenda. Set in the graceful port city of Haifa, Uzi Weil's screenplay laments the inevitable razing of landmark buildings and past ideals to make way for strip malls and rampant capitalism, but offers only the spectacle of suicidal resistance as a possible alternative...Shiray relies entirely on his teenage protagonist to emotionally color pic's oddly distanced happenings. Unfortunately, the unformed hero, portrayed by the equally unformed thesp Adam Hirsch, accepts whatever befalls him with somewhat colorless equanimity...Throughout, helmer Shiray maintains a curious detachment, adhering to Ilan's limited perception whereby fable, not tragedy, rules the day...Tech credits are pro.
