In THE CAKEMAKER, a German baker having an affair with a married Israeli man travels to Israel after his lover is in a fatal accident. There, he meets his widow and involves himself in her life to an unexpected degree, forcing him to lie about his connection to her deceased husband



Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has frequent business visits in Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking for answers regarding his death. Under a fabricated identity, Thomas infiltrates into the life of Anat, his lover’s newly widowed wife, who owns a small Café in downtown Jerusalem. Thomas starts to work for her and create German cakes and cookies that bring life into her Café.  Thomas finds himself involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.


“Sad and sweet, and with a rare lyricism, “The Cakemaker” believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religious belief can deter.” -New York Times


“The film binds its narrative to fascinating explorations of national identity, sexuality, and, of course, food.” – Slant Magazine
