The Cakemaker

The Cakemaker

This tender, delicate drama about a closeted love affair unfolds through the eyes of Thomas, a Berlin pastry chef. After Oren, Thomas’s married lover, dies in a car accident, Thomas travels to see the life Oren left behind. In this moving debut, director Ofir Raul Graizer explores the connection formed between Thomas and Anat, the Israeli widow of the man whom they both loved. Graizer delicately and gracefully traces the fluidity of desire and sexuality, the bonds forged by shared grief, and the challenges those can present to faith and family.
