He is still grieving – and the loss has caused problems between him and his husband.
Michael He just wants to do his research and go home. But when he sublets an apartment from Tomer (Nissim), a young film student, he finds himself drawn into the life of the city. The unlikely and intense bond he forms with him transforms both their lives in unexpected ways.
Sublet is a smart, sexy, funny, touching, thought-provoking and ultimately life-affirming indie gem from acclaimed writer-director Eytan Fox, the same man behind the critically-acclaimed gay films Yossi & Jagger and Walk on Water.
