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

Trivia

Dough's tagline "You don't have to be baked to make some Dough" (and poster layout) is a parody of Levy Rye's "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's real Jewish Rye" campaign from the '60s. See more »

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 »

The world kneads a movie like Dough.
8 February 2015 | by Randy-schiffSee all my reviews

The writer has lovingly braided a fairytale for adults that imagines a place where religious, ethnic and societal differences aren't dealt with violence but with respect, restraint and a desire for mutual understanding and appreciation.

An aging baker, an economically challenged refugee struggling to make a new life in a foreign land, a randy widow, opportunistic drug lord, and scheming business executive are tossed into the writer's mixing bowl.

As the yeast works its magic, we enjoy the dramatic conflicts and gentle humor director John Goldschmidt stretches, pulls and shapes from his cast. Jonathan Pryce (the Jewish baker Nat Dayan), Jerome Holder (the Muslim immigrant Ayyash), and Pauline Collins (the widow Joanna) deliver a perfectly browned Dough straight from the hearth and ready for your consumption.

Challah back if you think this review didn't rise to the occasion.
