SYNOPSIS

When a fretful Yoav first arrives in Paris, an unexpected robbery quite literally strips him of all his belongings. He nearly perishes if not for the inquiring kindness of a young couple: Emile, an aspiring writer with aristocratic sensibilities, and Caroline, his live-in beau who waves off Yoav’s tales. As Yoav persists in his agitated quest to become a Frenchman, he soon learns the self-effacing violence that must come with carving out a new identity from old skin.

This year’s winner of the Golden Bear at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival, Synonyms provokes new ways of thinking about identity politics. Director Nadav Lapid’s sensational vision will leave you reeling—for better or for worse.
