Kalkhof has perfect chemistry with both Miller and Adler. The characters don't have to talk for the audience to feel the loss, love and desire they're experiencing.

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.
