★★★★½ - STUFF 
- A precise drama that packs a powerful emotional punch -

For Anat (Naama Preis) music is all she has. Having never been able to reach her father's musical standards, she rests her hopes on the child she's about to give birth to. When the baby is born deaf, she uses extreme measures to make sure her son becomes the composer her father always wanted - but as he grows up and confronts his grandfather. Anat must finally stand up for her son. God of the Piano is the debut feature by Itay Tal and boasts an incredible original score. 

Anat is played by well-known Israeli actress Naama Preis, whose filmography includes a hat-trick of features in Cannes Critics’ Week – “From the Diary of a Wedding Photographer” (2016), “Beyond the Mountains and Hills” (2016) and “The Kindergarten Teacher” (2015).

The original score to “God of the Piano” is composed by Hillel Teplitsky and Roie Shpigler, who composed the score for Itay’s previous film “When You Played” (2012). Classical and original pieces in the film are performed by the pianist Eran Zvirin, and the cinematographer is Meidan Arama, whose credits include two best film award winners at Tribeca, including “Stiches” (2012), but also Hadas Ben Aroya’s “People That Are Not Me” (2016). 

★★★★ - Filmuforia
"A slick and enjoyable drama. ...tightly-scripted and quietly chilling. Prepare to be shaken and stirred."

"This is storytelling which is as enigmatic as it is compelling. Not surprisingly, the use of music throughout is superb." - Screen International
