His cakes are widely known and loved. In Berlin, baker Thomas delights his customers with cakes, biscuits, and pies. The Israeli businessman Oren is more than enthusiastic. Infatuated by the sweet treats, a passion develops between the two. However, Oren commutes between his wife and son in Jerusalem and Thomas in Berlin. Yet one day he does not show up. Thomas then goes to Jerusalem and begins to visit the Cafe of Oren’s wife. Slowly a new closeness develops between Anat and Thomas, but above all hovers the mystery of the relationship of Thomas and Oren. A love movie that plays on many levels. The special relationship between Israel and Germany forms the background. The love of baking and enjoyment runs through the film. And then several love stories are interwoven. The film easily and without raising concern crosses gender boundaries, to create a film in which love and sexuality are not restricted but liberated.
sraeli filmmaker OFIR RAUL GRAZIER completed film school at Sapir College in Sderot, and has since shot successful short films such as A PRAYER IN JANUARY, which has been screened at over 20 film festivals. Today he commutes between Berlin, the Uckermark, and Jerusalem. The German-Israeli co-production THE CAKEMAKER is his feature film debut.
