Nominated for 10 Israeli Academy Awards (including Best Film, Director and Actor), Restoration traces the engrossing tale of a man who has mastered the fine art of restoring antique furniture, but is sorely lacking in the art of dealing with life’s practicalities. Yaskov Fidelman (Sasson Gabay, star of PSIFF 2008 hit The Band’s Visit) seems to have spent his entire life as a near recluse, restoring beautiful objects to their original glory in his sequestered workshop while his charismatic business partner deals with the commerce and customers who keep the shop going. When Yaskov arrives one day to find that his partner has perished en flagrante, he is faced with the prospect of running the shop himself, and what’s more, he’s on the brink of bankruptcy.... Marking his debut as a solo director, filmmaker Yossi Madmony has created a highly accomplished and deeply intriguing work that reflects a heartening new trend in Israeli Cinema: films that transcend political issues and cultural boundaries to tell universal stories of family and fate. Winner: Best Film, Karlovy Vary & Jerusalem Film Festivals; Best Screenplay, Sundance Film Festival.
