Restoration

A Film by: Yossi Madmony

(Israel, 2011, 105 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Sasson Gabay, Henry David,            Nevo Kimchi, Sarah Adler, Ruth Borenstein)


When his business partner of many years dies suddenly, Yaakov Fidelman realizes his antique     furniture restoration shop is on the point of bankruptcy. Fidelman's son, who doesn't get along with      his father, wants to close the shop for good. "Without Malamud you are nothing!" Fidelman hears  people say. 

A ray of hope arrives in the form of apprentice Anton, who discovers an old Steinway piano in the      back of the shop which could conceivably be spruced up and sold for big bucks. Will Mr Fidelman        be able to establish peace within his own family and find tranquility within himself?
