Q&A with writer/director Ofir Raul Graizer and
star Tim Kalkhof!

The bittersweet romantic drama “The Cakemaker”, triumphed at Israel’s prestigious Ophir Awards last month clinching 7 prizes including Best Film and Best Actress.

Israel’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the 91st Academy Awards!

Synopsis: Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, a married Israeli man who makes frequent business trips to Berlin. When Oren dies suddenly in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking closure. Thomas infiltrates the life of Anat, Oren’s widow, who owns a small café. Thomas starts to work for her and channels his grief into creating cakes and cookies that bring life into her café. He finds himself involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.

Written/Directed by Ofir Raul Graizer
Starring Tim Kalkhof, Sarah Adler, Roy Miller & Zohar Strauss
