Washington Jewish Film Festival: The Cakemaker

German baker Tomas’ affair with Israeli businessman Oren ends abruptly when Oren dies. Without time to process, Tomas travels to Jerusalem, and finds work in a cafe run by his lover’s widow, Anat, but keeps his identity a secret.

Both mourning the same man, they stave off loneliness by finding common cause in the kitchen: Anat’s menu springs to life with mouthwatering cakes, pastries, and glossy confections. Business booms, but the newfound attention exposes rifts between Israel and Germany, secular and religious, and gay and straight.
