The Cakemaker (2017) Movie Script

Kredenz Cafe & Bakery
Good morning.
Good morning. Hello.
How are you?
- Good, and you?
- Good, thank you.
Every time I come to Berlin,
this is the first place I visit
because of your cookies.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
What do you recommend today?
Here we have a raisin pastry,
on the left,
and we have poppy seed pastries,
but you don't like those.
This is a classic fresh
Black Forest cake,
here in the middle.
- Should I explain in English?
- No.
I trust you.
I'll take this one,
a double espresso,
and a box
of your cinnamon cookies.
- Cinnamon cookies.
- My wife loves them.
- Ok. You may sit.
- Thank you.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
- For your wife.
- Thank you.
- Is everything okay?
- Yes, thank you.
Can I ask you something?
My son in Israel,
it's his birthday
and I don't have a clue
what to get him.
Do you have an idea
for a typical German present?
- How old is your son?
- 6 years old.
What are you doing here
in Berlin?
I work for
an Israeli-German company.
City planning, trains.
I know a toy store that
specializes in trains from steel,
they build and paint them
by hand.
- Maybe you get him a small train.
- That's a good idea.
Maybe you can come with me?
It would be nice to be guided
by a real Berliner.
I'm not a real Berliner, but...
sure, I can take you there.
Tai Tai!
Yes, sweetie, it's your father.
How are you?
How was school today?
Are you a good boy?
Not causing your mother any trouble?
I'll be back on Thursday.
I'll pick you up from school,
and we'll go for pizza.
Okay, sweetie, me too.
I love you very, very much.
Let me talk to your mother.
Hey, how are you?
A bit tired, that's all.
Okay, fine.
Why didn't you call me?
It wasn't planned.
How long are you staying?
Two days.
When are you coming back?
Beginning of December.
I brought the cookies
for your wife.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
When was the last time?
At home,
on the bed.
What did you do?
I laid her down,
then I kissed her.
Where exactly?
On the neck,
One month.
The number you've dialed
is currently unavailable.
Please leave a message
at the tone.
Oren, it's me.
You're probably on the plane.
You forgot your cookies
and your keys here.
I'll see you soon.
The number you've dialed
is currently unavailable.
Please leave a message
at the tone.
I've called you a couple of times,
I don't know
when you're coming back.
Just call me back.
The number you've dialed
is currently unavailable,
Please leave a message...
- Hello.
- Hello.
I'm looking for Oren.
Is he here?
I'm from Cafe Kredenz,
I must deliver this.
Oren isn't here.
Where is he?
He doesn't work here anymore.
Did he quit?
He ordered this,
and I was in the area
so I wanted to give it to him.
I just want to know
where he is.
I can't really talk about this.
There was an accident
in Jerusalem,
his office told us
almost six weeks ago.
That's all we know.
Oren was killed.
You're not cold anymore?
Change of personal status,
Married / Divorced...
That's all.
You bring it to the municipality
with your ID and passport,
you sign it, and that's it.
It needs to be done.
I'm going back to the Cafe
on Sunday.
What about Itai?
I'll leave work early
to pick him up,
Dana will help me out.
It'll be fine.
Just don't exert yourself.
Are you coming for Shabbat?
We'll come next week.
We'll talk tomorrow.
Thank you, Motti.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Sorry I'm late,
the bus drove off without stopping.
I had to wait for the next one.
Never mind.
Do you have some Pastrami?
What's up, Avram?
Thank God. How are you?
Salami? Pork?
Pork? Come on...
So that you won't open
without a Kosher certificate.
Thank you, I forgot that
the one we have is outdated.
It's okay, Motti told me.
Have a good week
and a good month.
Thanks. I'd offer you coffee,
but I still didn't clean the machine...
- I already had one.
- Okay.
- Good luck.
- Thanks.
Cafe Paamon
is hereby approved Kosher
Good morning.
What would you like?
- Double expresso, please.
- Something to eat, maybe?
What do you have?
Shakshuka, tomato sauce with
eggs inside or soup
and sandwiches.
- What kind of sandwiches?
- Sfatit. Israeli white cheese.
Sandwich with omelette,
herbs, cucumbers.
- Very good.
- Sounds good.
I'll have the sandwich.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Where are you from?
- From Germany.
- Where in Germany?
- Berlin.
- Welcome to Jerusalem.
- Thank you.
- Everything ok?
- Yeah. Perfect. Thank you.
- How much is it?
- 25.
- Keep the change.
- Thank you.
I was wondering if you need
a worker here.
- No. Not right now.
- Ok. Thank you.
Hebrew Youth Swimming Pool
I'm off.
There is soup on the stove,
take it off in ten minutes.
Are you picking Itai up
at 13:00?
No, I have a class at 12:00,
I told you on Wednesday.
- I forgot.
- Sorry.
Don't worry, I'll be fine.
- Bye.
- Bye.
- Have a good time, Dana.
- Thanks.
Hi. Motti?
No, everything's fine.
Could you pick Itai up
at 13:00?
Okay. I'll manage.
I'll close for an hour
or something.
So I'll see you later. Bye.
You're still looking for a job?
- Can you wash dishes?
- Sure.
Good. I need someone
to wash dishes 2-3 times a week,
in the mornings and help out
with errands, cleaning up a bit,
cutting vegetables, things like that.
- You're interested?
- Yeah.
Ok. So, I can pay you
25 shekels an hour.
- You can start tomorrow.
- At what time?
- How are you?
- Okay.
Yeah? Let me see you.
Listen, Aviva caught me
on the way out.
She said
he's shutting himself off.
Maybe you should talk to her.
Who's that?
A student, he works here.
- Where is he from?
- He's German.
Of all the places in the world,
you bring a German into your kitchen?
Two phone calls and I could find you
ten new workers.
What do you want? It works for me.
What's the problem?
He's German.
Come on, stop it.
- He's right here, that's not nice.
- It's okay, he doesn't hear us.
- I'll see you.
- Okay, thank you.
Here you go.
Did you get any homework?
- Hey.
- Hallo.
Can you stay today
for a few more hours?
- Two or three maybe?
- Okay.
Today my son has his birthday
so I have like a million things to do
and I don't know
how I'm going to manage.
Okay, you know what?
I need you to do this for me: You take
the pepper and you cut all around here.
Take it all off,
but be careful they don't break
because I'm going
to fill them up afterwards,
and pull it out. Okay?
Clean a little,
I'll wash them after. Okay?
- All of them?
- Yeah.
And the vegetables
you can put in the fridge, please.
And... Dana is outside,
so if you need anything, it's okay.
I'll be back in like, an hour,
an hour and a half.
- Okay. See you later.
- Bye. Thank you.
What is he doing?
Did you turn on the oven?
Anat, he can't use the oven,
it's forbidden.
I know, we won't sell those.
What are you doing?
It's a surprise
for Itai's birthday.
No, you cannot
turn on the oven, okay?
You're not Jewish, so this is not
Kosher. You understand?
We cannot use it, we have
to throw it in the garbage now.
If Avram sees this,
your cafe is finished, Anat.
I know.
Come, I want to talk
to you outside.
- Thomas, what are you doing?
- He told me to throw it away.
Don't, just leave it, okay?
Listen, it's very nice what you did,
but you can't touch the oven,
you can't bake here, okay?
Don't do anything
that I'm not asking you to do.
- I'm sorry.
- No, don't be sorry, it's okay.
I'll take care of it.
Go home, okay, just...
Go home.
Hello? Thomas?
Thomas, it's Anat.
I just wanted to say thanks
for the cookies you made,
and they're very good.
- You like them?
- Yes.
I would like to sell them
at the cafe.
If we pay attention
to some rules,
it will be fine
with the "Kosher".
So I'll see you tomorrow.
Okay, bye.
- Can I try?
- They're still warm.
- They'll fall apart.
- That's ok.
Is he alright?
What do you mean?
Where is he?
What do you mean,
you don't know where my son is?
Excuse me,
can I have a cappuccino?
- What?
- A cappuccino, please.
A cappuccino?
- Hello, Thomas?
- Yeah?
Listen, it's Motti.
- Is Anat's son there?
- No.
No. Okay...
Listen, he ran away from school
and we're looking for him,
so if he comes to the cafe,
just call Anat, okay?
- You have Anat's cell phone number?
- Yes.
- So you call her immediately, okay?
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Bye.
This is the best apartment
I could find you.
Thank you.
Here you have the kitchen.
This is milk, this is meat, okay?
This is milk dishes,
and there you have meat dishes.
You wash the milk here
and the meat here. That's it.
You're not Jewish,
but this is a Kosher apartment.
and it has to stay Kosher.
The owner trusts me.
Thank you.
Can I use the oven?
Yeah, you can use
whatever you want.
You have a nice view here.
Some lady just bought
a full box of your cookies.
- That's nice.
- What's in there?
It's just a basic recipe,
it's flour, sugar, butter...
Yeah, okay, but how much flour?
How much butter?
For one tray it's 250 grams flour,
125 grams butter,
75 grams sugar,
and one teaspoon of vanilla.
Good morning, Anat.
- How are you doing, Avram?
- Thank God.
- Is that the German?
- Yes.
How are you doing?
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
- You made this?
- Yes, sir, but I didn't use the oven.
- Since when do you sell cookies?
- We've only just started.
How is Itai?
Thank God.
Very nice, Anat.
- See you, folks.
- See you.
Do you want to come and have
dinner with us on Friday night?
You probably have plans, but...
No, nothing planned.
I can come.
Just us, you know,
just you and me and Itai.
Can I bring something?
I'm not going to use the oven.
No, it's okay,
we don't eat Kosher at home,
so you can...
yeah, you can bring anything.
Let's go.
Shabbat candle-lighting time
is at 16:27.
16:27. Good Shabbos.
- Good Shabbos.
- Good Shabbos.
- Hello.
- Hi.
I'm sorry, it's all wet.
- Come in.
- But my shoes are all...
Okay, no, but come in,
because it's cold.
- This is for you.
- Thank you.
- This is for later.
- Great. Thanks.
You want to maybe... I don't know,
you want to dry yourself?
Yeah? Okay.
It's the bathroom over there.
- Okay.
- I'll give you...
- Left?
- I'll find you some clothes.
Hurry up, dinner is ready.
- You can sit down.
- Thank you.
Do you want
to say the blessing?
We don't have to.
- Yes.
- Okay.
Sit nicely.
- Together?
- Yes.
The sixth day. And the heavens and the
earth and all their hosts were completed.
And God finished
by the Seventh Day His work,
and He rested on the Seventh Day
from all His work.
And God blessed the Seventh Day
and made it holy,
for on it
He rested from all His work.
Blessed are you,
Lord, our God,
Sovereign of the universe,
who creates the fruit of the vine. Amen.
Say Amen.
- Where does he live?
- Where does he live?
Now he lives here,
but he came from Germany.
Where is his mother?
I don't know.
- He wants to ask you a question.
- Okay.
He wants to know
where your mother is.
I don't have a mother.
I grew up
with my grandmother.
He doesn't have a mother,
he grew up with his grandmother.
Where is his father?
you're asking too many questions.
If he doesn't want to answer,
he doesn't have to.
He wants to know where
your father is.
My father left
when I was very young.
He doesn't want to answer.
- Okay.
- Okay?
So... this is...
Classical German recipe.
- No, you made this cake?
- Yes.
Itai, Thomas made it himself!
Look at this cake.
Would you like some?
How come?
Motti told me not to eat
what Thomas bakes.
- Really?
- Yes.
- Is that what he said?
- Yes.
You don't have to listen
to everything your uncle says.
You should try it,
it's very good.
Want to eat the cream at least?
The white part isn't forbidden.
Thank you.
What's up?
- Do you have a minute?
- Shoot.
Why don't you answer my calls?
but you see how it is here.
I thought
you'd come for Shabbat.
Did you tell Itai
not to eat Thomas' food?
Yes, I don't want him
to eat non- Kosher food.
And I don't want him to be afraid
of eating, Kosher or not.
Forget Itai, think about the cafe.
You employ a non- Jewish worker,
people talk,
you'll lose your Kosher certificate.
Thanks to him,
I have an order for 60 people.
People come here to eat his cakes,
not mine. I don't bake.
- Enough with this Kosher issue.
- Lower you voice, people can hear.
So let them hear. I'm not religious
and I don't want to be religious.
Get off my back.
Kredenz Cafe & Bakery
I made a shopping list.
You want to go?
Yeah, I'll come.
We will take two boxes
of the yellow apples.
Two boxes?
No, the green ones.
Okay, I'm done here.
What should I do next?
You can help me
with the dough.
No, I think it's better if you give me,
like, easy missions,
because I'm not very good
with dough.
I'll show you.
No, really, like,
I don't get along.
I tried to make something
for Oren once,
and the dough
would just not rise at all.
Because yeast and I just don't...
don't get along.
You just need to know
how to treat the yeast.
Okay, I'll try.
Okay, so...
take a little bit of flour
in your hands,
like this,
and then take one...
me another,
and then you... yeah.
Roll it, fast.
And then...
- You make it...
- See?
A little flour,
you make it flat, like this.
Then turn...
And put it here.
Your husband, he died, right?
In a car accident.
Actually, he used to go
to Berlin a lot
because he had
a very big work project there.
He used to bring us cookies
from there,
very good cookies, like...
similar like the ones you make.
The cinnamon ones,
but a little better.
What about you?
Do you have someone in Germany?
I wasn't sure,
but I saw some light.
I don't want to
disturb, I just came to say hello.
You're not
disturbing, Hanna.
Anat, dear...
We just got stuck late here today,
we're about to finish.
Want a ride home?
No, I'll take the bus.
Come on,
I'll drive you home.
Do you want a ride?
I'll take you home.
Oh, thanks,
that will be great. Thank you.
- Hello.
- Hello.
Are you Thomas?
Do you speak Hebrew?
I know a little bit German.
But my son, he spoke
very very well German. He...
He spoke five languages
very well.
You knew my son?
I'm sorry,
I didn't know your son.
Shall we?
Thank you, Anat.
- Bye.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Bye.
- Will you help me with my...?
- Oh, yes, of course.
Here, come.
Here, put it here, thanks...
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Wait, because I want
to give you something,
something I cooked for Shabbat,
and this is very good,
it's eggplants
with cheese and with basil.
- It's for you.
- It's...
- I can't take, it's too much.
- No, no, take it, please.
You will enjoy this, this is...
Nobody here will eat it.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
- I shouldn't let Anat wait.
- No, don't let her wait.
- Okay. Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
Sie haben 13 neue...
- Hi.
- Hi, Thomas.
- How are you?
- Good.
I was just about
to put this away,
and I thought maybe...
Maybe you can look if there are things
that you're interested in.
- Okay.
- So, I don't know, just look.
And if you don't want,
what you don't want,
you can put, maybe, on the street
and I'm sure someone...
someone will take.
- Okay.
- Okay?
- Thank you.
- Sure.
This is new.
Maybe you try it? It's...
- What is it?
- It's bread. I made it.
Maybe you'll like it.
Thank you.
See you tomorrow morning.
- Hello!
- Hello!
Shabbat Shalom!
Very nice you did here.
Feels like home.
My mother...
cooked you some food
for Shabbat.
- You know it's Shabbat today?
- Yes.
So on Shabbat
it's not very good to stay alone.
So next Shabbat, please,
you come to us, okay?
Okay, thank you.
Here you have potato latkes
and this is stuffed vegetables.
Thank you.
So, Shabbat Shalom and good evening,
and next Shabbat you come to us.
- Okay?
- Okay.
- Shabbat Shalom.
- Shabbat Shalom, bye.
Cafe Paamon.
Special occasions?
Yes, we do special occasions.
For how many people?
30? Okay.
Okay, 30 cakes.
So, which...?
Do you know what we have?
Five from every sort.
Just let me check
if it's possible for Friday.
I'll get back to you
in five minutes.
I'll write down your number.
I'll get back to you soon.
Yes, we're Kosher,
of course we're Kosher.
Thanks, goodbye.
We just got an order
for Friday,
for, like,
many, many, many cakes.
- I don't know if we can do it.
- Okay.
- I didn't tell her anything yet.
- What is it?
5 Black Forest,
5 with the apricots,
5 apple pies,
5 Streusel...
- That's it?
- No, one more.
5... the chocolate rolls.
What do you think?
It's too much, no?
It's a lot.
It's... it's possible.
- But I need your help.
- Yeah, okay.
- Yeah?
- Sure.
- Now.
- Now, we start.
- Okay?
- Let's do it, yeah.
Hi, Motti, how are you?
- How are you, buddy?
- Okay.
- We're late for a movie.
- I'll be back in a minute, okay?
I'm really sorry, Motti.
It's one thing that you only call
when you need help,
but your son wants you
to take him to the cinema,
and instead, you're here.
I made you some soup.
Let's go.
Anat, can you turn off
the fire, please?
Sorry, I... sorry.
So what can I do?
- Maybe just take a break.
- I don't want to take a break, okay?
I want to help.
So what can I do?
We need to flatten the dough.
Like, really flat.
It doesn't work.
What did I tell you?
You have to treat it,
you know, nicely.
With your hands,
you have to make it warm.
Make it, you know...
flour and then you have to...
It's too cold.
And make it flat.
Continue, okay?
You just...
Make it...
And God blessed the Seventh Day
and made it holy,
for on it He rested from all His work
which God created to function.
Blessed are you,
Lord, our God
Sovereign of the universe,
who creates the fruit of the vine.
What is his name?
That's my wife.
Would you want
to have children?
I can't do what you do.
Family is important.
Not to be alone.
I'm not alone.
I have my work,
I have my apartment,
and I have you,
once a month.
Some people have nothing.
They are born alone
and die alone.
My grandma always said: One should
appreciate what one has.
That's very important.
I grew up with her,
in her bakery in Gerswalde,
it's a small village
outside Berlin,
just the two of us.
She died two years ago.
When are you coming back?
In a month and a half.
My wife
is opening her new cafe.
What will happen
when she finds out?
It will never happen.
When was the last time?
At home.
What did you do?
I kissed her...
Where else?
On the ears,
on the neck...
And then what did you do?
We made love.
For you.
And this is for me,
and we start. Yes?
We put it inside...
we don't fill it too much
so it has place to grow.
Yes, good.
You want to see his room?
It's on the corridor,
the last door, it's...
it's open.
I put only lemon,
but most people do put water.
I put just lemon,
that's Oren's way.
He cooked for you?
No, just this,
that was his thing.
No, he liked eating
better than cooking.
Okay, we need some more.
Can you tell me what this is?
That's a receipt
from a Chinese restaurant.
Yeah, I know, but I mean, what's...
what's in there?
Here it says, 2...
2 tofu noodles,
1 mango juice,
1 apple juice.
- That's a starter here...
- Okay.
And this one?
That's a receipt
from a supermarket.
What's... what's in there?
It has butter,
milk, cream, flour.
Okay, and...
this one?
I don't know,
there are many of these.
One in February,
two in March,
one in January.
He used to go there a lot,
I guess. I think it's Cafe Kredenz.
Do you know it?
He wanted to move there,
to Berlin.
He had someone there.
He told me.
And he wanted
to leave me and Itai here
and go to Berlin
and make a new life.
And I didn't want him to stay here,
so I asked him to go
and he went to get a room
in a hotel, and...
and then another car hit him
on his way there.
Public Warning -
Cafe Paamon is not Kosher.
The public should take caution
and beware
What do we do with all of this?
Motti, they took my certificate.
I have an order for 120 people,
do you know how much it cost?
They canceled, because it's...

This is 400 shekels.
In four hours you have a flight
so you have exactly one hour
to pack yourself.
You take the money,
you go to the airport,
and you never come back
to this country.
Do you understand me?
I can't go.
Do you understand me?
- I have to talk to her.
- No, no talking! No talking!
She doesn't want

She doesn't want you here,

Is the place Kosher?
We don't have a certificate,
but the kitchen is Kosher.
It's up to you.
- Is this one any good?
- The best in Jerusalem.
Was it made by the German guy
who works here?
It's his recipe,
but he doesn't
work here anymore.
- Okay, I'll take one.
- Yes?
