The Cakemaker is a film where actions speak are more effective than words. The triangle between Thomas, a German baker and Oren and Anat, an Isreali couple, is well told. It is a story that allows that love is fluid and everyone deals with pain in their own way. Thomas uses his baking skills to help Anat ’s struggling restaurant but also brings problems. This film has very little dialogue, but I really felt their love, grief, despair and hope. Despite the ambiguous ending this movie was very enjoyable. Oren’s mother, Hanna (Sandra Sade), is a delightful addition to the film. Watch it with some cinnamon cookies.
We were able to see this film courtesy of the USA Film Festival at a screening.
