Restoration (Boker Tov Adon Fidelman)

Directed by: Yossi Madmoni
115 Minutes, 2011, Drama

70 year old Yaakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabai, The Band’s Visit) hangs on with all his might to the antique restoration workshop which has been his life’s work. After his long-time business partner passes away, Fidelman rejects his son Noah’s idea to close the business and build an apartment complex on the site. He believes that with the help of his new apprentice Anton, he’ll find a way to save his workshop, his world and his solitary way of life. When Anton falls in love with Hava, Noah’s pregnant wife, the two young men compete not only over a father, but also over a woman and the baby she carries.
