One of the most moving, original, and emotionally surprising films of the year, The Cakemaker is a must-see. Ofir Raul Graizer’s stunningly acted film explores the evolving connection between Thomas, a gay German pastry chef (Tim Kalkhof), and Jerusalem café owner Anat (Sarah Adler, Jellyfish) in the aftermath of a personal tragedy that unknowingly ties the two together. This Israeli-German production is an indelible film about loneliness, love, family, and the fluidity of identity—religious, national, sexual. Also starring Zohar Strauss (Eyes Wide Open NCJF’10), Roy Miller, and Sandra Sade.

“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 that marks an auspicious feature debut for Israeli writer-director Ofir Raul Graizer.”
