Cupcakes Review

When Israeli baker Anat's (Waxman) husband walks out, her friends decide to cheer her up with a song. A few twists of fate later and their ditty is on course to be the country's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.


Celebrating and satirising Euro song contests while exposing their cynicism and kitsch, this brisk comedy follows five friends as they seek solutions to their domestic and romantic problems while representing Israel in Paris. Alternately slick and superficial, but undemanding fun.

Warmhearted viewing with a few chuckles along the way.
