Followed by a Q&A with Ofir Raul Graizer. “Pastry dough is far from the only thing that requires — and duly receives — delicate handling in The Cakemaker a tender, tactile and just-sweet-enough story of hidden love, challenged faith and unwittingly shared grief” Guy Lodge, Variety A German pastry chef travels to Jerusalem in search of the wife and son of his dead lover in this Israeli box office hit. This is the humanely spun, at times heartrending story of Thomas, a young German baker, who is grieving the loss of his lover Oren in a car crash. Oren is an Israeli married man, who meets Thomas and falls in love on one of his trips to Berlin. Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death. Under a false identity, Thomas infiltrates the life of his lover’s newly-widowed wife. Thomas starts to work for her and brings new life to her café with his fabulous cakes. Finding himself involved far beyond his expectations, he stretches his lie to a point of no return. Hebrew and German with English subtitles. Film running time is 104 minutes.
