Review

Thomas, a baker, becomes a lover of Oren, an Israeli married man who is on a business trip to German. When Oren dies in a car crash, Thomas travels to Jerusalem. Under false presences, Thomas infiltrates into the life of Anat, Oren´s widow who owns a cafe. He creates the cakes and cookies to help Anat’s business. But as his identity is revealed, Anat gets suspicious of him. Slowly approaching the untold truth, The Cakemaker delicately controls the narrative and the feelings of the characters. Sensual shots with food, vivid performances, and accurate editing support the perfection of melancholic melodrama. A German making cakes in a Jewish kitchen, the forbidden love with the lover´s widow. The metaphor of the past specter haunted between the Germans and the Jews leads us to ethical drama about the characters´ actions and choices. [JANG Byungwon]
