The Human Resources Manager

Israel, Germany, France/Hebrew, English, Romanian with English subtitles (103 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! The Human Resources Manager of Jerusalem's largest bakery is in trouble. He is separated from his wife, distanced from his daughter, and stuck in a job he hates. When one of his employees, a foreign worker, is killed in a suicide bombing, the bakery is accused of indifference, and the HR Manager is sent to the victim's hometown in Romania to make amends. Far from home, on a mission to honor a woman he didn't even know but has somehow grown to admire, the HR Manager fights to regain his company's reputation - and possibly his own humanity.

Winner of 5 Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Human Resources Manager is a marvellously humane drama (peppered with a dash of sardonic humour) that features a truly wonderful performance by Mark Ivanir, in the title role.

Based on the novel 'A Woman in Jerusalem', by Abraham B. Jehoshua. Hebrew with English subtitles.
