Canada/ English / 2011
When openly gay Leo decides to bring his boyfriend Mitchell home for the first time during his family’s Passover Seder, the boundaries of love and understanding get a little strained. To top it all off, Rabbi Solomon is the guest of honour on this most special of occasions.
Directed By Eytan Fox
90mins. / Israel 2013 / Hebrew, French and English with English subtitles / 2013
Award-winning filmmaker Eytan Fox (Yossi & Jagger, Walk On Water) returns with a stylised, gossamer-light musical comedy about life, love and friendship.
When heartbroken Tel Aviv baker Anat gets together with her friends to watch a Eurovision-style song contest, the catchy tune they write to cheer her up unexpectedly ends up as Israel’s entry for the contest! But will the good-natured friends survive the cut-throat world of the pop business? With feel good music by Babydaddy (Scissor Sisters), technicolor styling à la Almodóvar and an unashamedly entertaining storyline that could have come from Friends, this hit musical comedy is the guiltiest pleasure of the year.
The screenings are parts of the The 15th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival, for more information, please visit http://asiasociety.org/hong-kong/15th-hong-kong-jewish-film-festival
