Graizer take his time and never feels the need to spell everything out, and "The Cakemaker" is a testament to what filmmakers can achieve when they trust the audience.

The most fascinating kind of tension results, an unusual state of affairs that plays fair with the characters, and with us.

[Director] Ofir Raul Graizer... invests Thomas' baking skills and that Black Forest cake with the power to seduce and enchant.
