The Cakemaker is a gem - The Cakemaker review by JF

Spoiler Alert
08/02/2020

A slow-moving but elegiac film. Very moving and with loads of sexual tension. Thought-provoking with its central them and its setting in Berlin and Jerusalem with a German and with Israeli protagonists. Beautiful acting from central parts and the director is one to watch.

Brilliant - The Cakemaker review by JR

Spoiler Alert
12/04/2020

I must agree with the previous two reviews, this film is a gem and a must see for those who like slow paced, lyrical , moving cinema.

It's sad, moving, heart warming, heart wrenching and beautiful. All the actors are so good, even the very small role of the grandmother was so well observed, particularly in a small scene reminiscent of Brokeback Mountain. The central title role is so understated, yet so powerful. The worst thing was i couldn't eat the cakes. they looked really scrumptious!

In essence this is a lovely film about love.

A beautiful story with underlying grief - The Cakemaker review by mc

Spoiler Alert
01/12/2020

The scene starts in Berlin with a tender gay encounter, then moves to Jerusalem where the Cakemaker seeks out the widow of his friend (killed in a car crash), he gradually finds a place in her life at her Jerusalem restaurant/cafe. Finally he returns to Berlin. The camera shots are slow and telling. At no time do the politics and international standing of the two cities detract from the sensitive nature of nationality, religion and sexuality explored. A sadness pervades the movie but the story is believable and memorable
