"Abe" is a 12-year-old half Israeli and half Palestinian kid from Brooklyn driven by his passion for food, who has never had a dinner without a family fight. Abe escapes from a stupid summer cooking camp and is mentored by the Afro Brazilian Chef "Chico", who specializes in serving fusion food at pop up food fairs. One side of the family prefers to call him "Avraham" (in Hebrew), the other side "Ibrahim" (in Arab), while his agnostic atheist parents call him "Abraham", in English. But he prefers Abe, just Abe.
Early in the film, Abe's mother compares him to Walter White, the main character from the television show "Breaking Bad." Mark Margolis, the actor who plays Abe's grandfather, played Tio Salamanca, a recurring character on "Breaking Bad." See more »
The film certainly has its heart in the right place. The basic idea is for all its intents and purposes charming and addresses an interesting and important topic. However, director Fernando Andrade completely fails to establish the film's premise in a believable way, through which the rest of the movie's story extremely suffers from. All in all, Abe (2020) only ends up as a noncredible feelgood-movie with a wannabe deep message.
Abe:"I'm going to the party!"
School kid:"Don't we get enough of you at school?" *Comment gets 7 likes*
Me:"This kid is getting bullied all because he likes cooking?!? LMFAO TF"
