The Cakemaker

Film Review: The Cakemaker (Der Kuchenmacher) at BFI London Film Festival

On paper, the storyline to The Cakemaker sounds every bit as elegantly twisted as The Talented Mr Ripley, as a German baker integrates himself in to the life of his deceased lover’s wife in Jerusalem, building a deep connection with her while never disclosing the truth about his relationship with her other half.
