An Israeli man returns to Israel after 10 years in America. An encounter with a childhood friend and his future-wife will change everyone’s lives. A story set between a flower shop and an ancient monastery, a swimming pool and the Mediterranean Sea, life and death – and somewhere in the middle. After the success of “The Cakemaker”, writer/director Ofir Raul Graizer returns with an affectionate tribute to 60s and 70s cinema in a film full of emotion, colour and fragrance that pays homage to values such as friendship, love and moral responsibility.
“Luxuriantly sensual, Ofir Raul Graizer’s America boldly embraces melodrama in a film marked by strong, nuanced, performances.” ~ Midnight East
