Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has regular business in Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death. Without revealing his reasons, Thomas infiltrates the life of Anat, his lover’s widow, and even accepts a job in her cafe.

Set aside the mouthwatering cookies and cakes, Ofir Raul Graizer’s debut feature is actually a model of restraint. This is melodrama, but a love story in which the word is barely spoken, a film in which the intimacy of cooking, the sharing of food, touch and taste all play significant roles in the shaping of destinies.

"Sad and sweet, and with a rare lyricism, The Cakemaker believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religious belief can deter… a master class in exquisite restraint." Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
