THE CAKEMAKER (Metacritic Reviews & Trailer)
May 29 & 30, 2020

The CakemakerThe Cakemaker is a beautiful film that explores love, loss, and religion. Thomas, a young and talented German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who dies in a car crash. Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding Oren’s death. Keeping his secret to himself, Thomas starts working for Anat, his lover’s widow, who owns a small cafe. The New York Times calls The Cakemaker “sad and sweet, and with a rare lyricism” that “believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religious belief can deter.” (in Hebrew/German) (113 minutes).
