Restoration

Directed by Yossi Madmoni

Israel | 102 minutes | 2011

Hebrew with English subtitles

Seventy-year-old Yaakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabai from MJFF 2010 film Hello, Goodbye) is thrown into turmoil after the sudden death of his long-time partner in a Tel Aviv antique restoration workshop. Just as his ambitious son Noah pressures him to sell the business and build an apartment complex on the site, a talented new assistant shows up, giving him hope. Anton has many secrets, yet he forms a bond with Yaakov that Noah finds as threatening as the flirtation between his very pregnant wife (Sarah Adler) and Anton. A complex character study that also displays great reverence for a very traditional profession, the film’s title resonates on several levels without providing easy answers.
