Two interconnected stories in the 1930s, one set in Berlin, the other in Palestine:
Berlin-Jerusalem is a 1989 British-Dutch-French-Israeli-Italian English-, French-, German-, and Hebrew-language independent historical experimental. film. It was directed by Amos Gitai. I first saw caps from poster Charles on DreamCaps, and after a lot of searching, finally found a copy yesterday in order to make a clip.

The second, the Russian Manya Shochat, called Tania in the film, settles in a community in Israel. Similar to his turn in Night Terrors, Juliano Mer-Khamis has a small, but visually significant role. He comes in during the middle, providing the hotness and male skin these dramas both needed and benefited from.
