Berta, a sprightly Jewish grandmother, and her equally vivacious granddaughter Shira argue passionately about love and what a woman can and cannot do - especially when Shira makes up her mind to marry Maria, who is German. Their relationship is serious, and they want to get married. When the two families meet, it quickly becomes clear that, despite their differences, they agree about one thing: the wedding must be planned! Only one person fights tooth and nail to prevent them from tying the knot - Berta. To her, a marriage between an Israeli and a German is simply impossible. With a loving eye for her characters and casting societal and religious conventions aside, Israeli director and author Shirel Peleg brings people and their relationships together in Kiss Me Kosher. Israel’s beautiful scenery is the backdrop for this film as it plays in wonderfully unkosher ways with common clichés about love, religion, and the relationship between Germans and Israelis, casually and pointedly unmasking them.
