Cinema Spotlight: Cupcakes

From Eytan Fox the director of Yossi, comes this extravagant and unashamedly
entertaining Eurovision parody featuring a feel-good soundtrack provided by Babydaddy
from the Scissor Sisters.

Set in contemporary Tel Aviv, Cupcakes follows six diverse best friends who gather to
watch the wildly popular UniverSong competition. Appalled by the Israeli entry, they
decide to create their own and record it on a mobile phone. Unbeknownst to them, their
performance is seen by the UniverSong judges and selected as Israel’s entry for next
year’s competition.

With bright, Almodóvar-esque styling, irresistibly catchy tunes and a
gloriously uplifting storyline, this laugh-out-loud comedy is a refreshing ode to music,
friendship and romance.

Watch the trailer for Cupcakes below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.
