“The most moving part of Cafe Nagler is the intense bond between these two women.” – The Jerusalem Post

“both original and surprising” – Haaretz

Berlin’s legendary café is at the centre of a heartwarming film about family and memory.

Café Nagler was the crown of 1920s Berlin’s café culture: three-storied with a fancy bar and restaurant, and frequented by the likes of Einstein and Brecht. Or at least these were the stories Israeli filmmaker Mor Kaplansky, the great-granddaughter of the original owners, grew up on. Encouraged by her grandmother, she travels to Berlin to learn more about the history of the famous establishment only to find out that the family narrative has been amended slightly over the years. This is a heartwarming film about memory, mythmaking and families, best enjoyed with a good cup of coffee and a slice of Gugelhof.
