“A tender, tactile and just-sweet-enough story of hidden love, challenged faith and unwittingly shared grief” - Variety

After the death of his lover, Oran, Thomas heads to Israel - the birthplace of the man he adored. Despite prejudice against his German origins, Thomas becomes the pastry chef at a local café owned by Oran's widow. Yet she hardly suspects that the unnamed sorrow that connects her to the stranger is for one and the same man.

Beloved by critics and winner of the Ecumenical Jury award at the 2017 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and the Lia Award at the 2017 Jerusalem Film Festival, The Cakemaker offers a moving meditation on love and the human urge for connection.
