Description
 
When an amateur actor (Stephane Freiss) lands the lead role in a Yiddish-language version of The Merchant of Venice, he's thrilled at his luck--the revelation is enough to offer elation to his gravely ill wife Perla (Berenice Bejo). Fate tosses the actor a curveball, however, when the production director (Peter Coyote) recasts the part. Now the actor must give the performance of a lifetime to fool his wife into believing that he's still a star. "A delectable French treat! Funny, romantic and poignant all at the same time" (E! Online). In French with English subtitles.

Steve Suissa---France---2004---86 mins.
