film synopsis

This tender, delicate drama about a closeted love affair, unfolds through the eyes of Thomas, a Berlin baker, who belatedly learns that Oren, his commuting Israeli lover, has died in a Jerusalem car accident. Unmoored by his loss, Thomas decides to visit the place where his lover lived and look at his uncloseted life, which included a wife, Anat, and a young son. Without revealing much about his past except for his baking credentials, Thomas takes a job in Anat’s café. But his almost silent, melancholy presence catalyzes unexpected consequences. Blessed with strong, sensitive performances from his leading actors, writer/director Ofir Raul Graizer crafts an indelible film about loneliness and yearning, filled with sensuous textures and mouthwatering pastries. As Anat reveals details about her married life to Thomas, Graizer complements the micro level with a picture of the larger tensions roiling Jerusalem and the way that Israeli society is almost closed to outsiders.
