Storyline

Safa Habimana, a Muslim immigrant in Britain who struggles to make ends meet, hopes that she and her troubled teenage son, Ayyash, will reunite with her husband one day. However, with lots of time on his hands, Ayyash will soon find the police on his doorstep--and as a result--his desperate mother will need to take some drastic measures. So, without delay, Safa sets up an appointment with Nat, her Jewish boss and the neighbourhood's baker, to beg him to take her son as an apprentice. Of course, new beginnings are usually hard at first; but, little by little, as Nat's business starts to flourish thanks to a revolutionary recipe, a strong bond will develop between them. But, do they know that problems are just around the corner? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

There is a sign in the bakery that says, "All our goods are baked on premises as yosan". Although the word "yosan" is supposed to be transliteration of a Hebrew word, it is still misspelled. The word is commonly spelled "yoshon", which in Jewish law refers to when certain types of grains are planted and take root in relation to the calendar year. See more »

An old-fashioned very slow drama with a high level of (Jewish) buzz
14 September 2018 | by akcenatSee all my reviews

"Dough" is movie about an old Jewish man who sees his bakery facing a decline in sales until his Muslim immigrant apprentice adds a drug-related ingredient into the recipe. The movie is, in short, much like the results of main characters baking - it's lacking the industrial uniformity of bigger-budget productions, the laughs are few and far between, the pacing is slow and it all feels a little flat, but it's trying to follow a recipe to be predictable and easy-to-swallow for as wide an audience as possible. In the end, Dough gets a little bit overcooked, but it pushes all the buttons in the cliché department which makes the film basically a feel-good drama that, from time to time, can make you laugh. Not for younger audience 'cos its humor is not funny, funny but more subtle/ironic. 5/10.
