"Metallic Blues"


"Metallic Blues" is a touching and amazing tragicomic road-movie, about two Israeli car dealers who risk it all in search of a better life, only to find out the most unexpected personal and historical truths. The opportunity of a lifetime has crossed paths with Shmuel and Siso; or so they think.

They invest US$5,000 in a vintage 1985 Lincoln Continental Limousine and plan to sell it in Germany for €50,000. They ship the car to Germany, and bring themselves and their dreams to Hamburg where their nightmare begins. Meanwhile, Shmuel experiences a very disturbing hallucination. The family stories of the Holocaust are taking over his mind… A film about friendship and reconciliation surrounded with the memories of the dark days in the history of Germany and Israel.
