Kiss Me Kosher

When two generations of Israeli women fall for a German woman and a Palestinian man, chaos follows in this romantic misadventure crossing all borders. After a string of casual ex-girlfriends, Shira, a flamboyant Israeli restauranteur, finally finds her soul mate in Maria, a quiet, resolute German who has uprooted entirely just to be with her in Tel Aviv. Shira’s headstrong, critical grandmother, Berta, openly disapproves of their relationship, yet is secretly involved with her Palestinian neighbor, Ibrahim. Their attempts to bridge cultures and navigate family mishigas while planning a wedding fuel a lot of “romp-com” hilarity but also generate moments that bravely confront emotional wounds of the past. In throwing convention to the wind, Israeli director, Shirel Peleg, shows her fondness for the characters who come together in eyebrow-raising, adorably loving ways.
