This first feature from Israeli director Ofir Raul Graizer has been picking up prizes around the world. It's easy to see why. The story of a young German pastry chef who makes a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and inveigles his way into the life of his male lover's widow without revealing his identity is beautifully told and although tragic ultimately satisfying. At the London Film Festival, where the film was nominated for the Sutherland prize, Graizer revealed that he developed the story from one he'd heard. Each scene is simply but expertly shot and the overall effect is profoundly moving. The Israeli cast, particularly Sarah Adler as the widow, is as good as we've come to expect from this country's actors; but Tim Kalkhof as the boy - quiet melancholy masking a huge depth of emotion - is superb. An award for this role must be on the cards.The couple's sex scene in a kitchen, covered in only two takes, is electrifying. Along the way Graizer also deals with the mysteries of kosher rituals, while the food preparation becomes almost hypnotic. One expects the impossible situation that develops to be unresolvable and for the film to stop abruptly. But there is a suggestion of a happy ending. The characters are so well drawn that this is a film that will stay with you long after the final fade.

Beautifully told romance satisfies on almost every levelReviewed bydavidvmcgillivray-24-905811Vote: 9/10
I have just watched this movie today as part of London Film Festival. I loved it. It has such an incredible depth. Acting was amazing. It brought tears to my eyes, still I tremendously enjoyed it. Storytelling, depth of characters, score, locations everything beautifully fit with each other. I can't believe this is the first movie of the director. I am already a big fan and will look for more of his films in the future.
Well acted; intelligent script; some thematic elements especially around the role of kosher, and religion dictating for all (although many kosher proscriptions seem worthwhile), also ironic to use a German (also, his English was quite good) in the visiting star role. So, our German, Berlin pastry shop owner/cook decides to find out what happened to one of his customers (a traveling Israeli) so he closes up shop (weak point, not clear what happened to the shop) and travels to Jerusalem to find out. Pretends to be in the city by chance, but there secretly to investigate the customer's background beginning with his unknowing wife; decides to stay & investigate further by working in her cafe. Nice flow to the story that keeps the viewer engaged. Second weak point, was the ending. When you write your story you should complete the task and write your ending. Yes, there was a subtle hint, but too subtle to be sure.
