Metallic Blues is a road-movie about two Israeli car dealers (played by Avi Kushnir and Moshe Igvy) who buy a vintage American-made limousine hoping to get rich quick by selling it in Hamburg. What they encounter along the way are unexpected truths about friendship, reconciliation, and the ghosts of Germany’s dark past.

“Offbeat, largely comic treatment of present-day German/Jewish relations…carried off with rhythm-perfect aplomb by the lead fortysomething Mutt 'n' Jeff duo.” – Ronnie Scheib (Brandeis ’65), Variety
