Restoration at the Mandel JCC's Leonard Krieger Cleveland Jewish FilmFest
Israel, 2011, 106 minutes
Hebrew with English subtitles
Director: Yossi Madmony

After his longtime business partner dies, Yakov Fidelman discovers that his antique furniture-restoration shop is in grave financial difficulty. He's forced to deal with his estranged son, Noah, a lawyer, who, seeing no hope for the failing store, proposes building apartments above it. One day Fidelman's new apprentice, Anton, finds a neglected piano in the workshop: an 1882 Steinway that, given a new baseboard, would be worth enough to save the store. The elegant story lines of Yossi Madmony's first feature yield a complex set of frayed character relations for which restoration proves an apt metaphor. Refinishing the piano's exterior would be worthless without replacing the cracked cast-iron board holding the string tension. Marked by restrained writing, which leaves significant details open to interpretation, Restoration depicts the rich texture of modern Israeli society. Anchored by Sasson Gabay's mesmerizing performance, Fidelman is a stoic man who uses his shop to shut out the world, clinging to the illusion that he can maintain a vanishing way of life. Winner of Best Full-Length Feature Film, 2011 Jerusalem Film Festival.

Sponsors: Mandel JCC Drost Cultural Arts Fund; Mandel JCC Peterman Family Arts & Culture Fund
