The Cakemaker, winner of best feature award at Jerusalem Film Festival, the country’s submission to the foreign-language film category at the Academy Awards and winner for best screenplay, best director and best actress. This film about love and relationships focuses on a young German baker named Tomas who falls in love with Oren, a married Israeli man who makes frequent business trips to Berlin. When Oren disappears, Tomas travels to Jerusalem looking for answers. Without revealing his secret, he begins working for Oren’s widow at her small café and becomes involved in her life in unexpected ways. As business flourishes with Tomas’ kitchen talents, the bereaved pair forges a bond that blurs lines of nationality, religion and sexuality. Contains sexual scenes and nudity; not suitable for children.
