The Human Resources Manager
THE HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER • Comedy, Drama
This dark comedy was directed by Eran Riklis (THE SYRIAN BRIDE, THE LEMON TREE, DANCING ARABS) and won five Awards of the Israeli Film Academy. 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.
