“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.
This movie brings different subjects to the public. It is not only about food, but the relationship Abe has with it and his family, the feelings he hides and how food has changed his life. The script is well written and Fernando did a great job directing it. Furthermore, I loved the selection of the actors such as Noah Schnapp and Mark Margolis.
