(Oct. 25-Nov. 21) — Winner of the Golden Bear at Berlinale, the latest from Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid ("The Kindergarten Teacher") features Tom Mercier as Yoav, a disaffected young Israeli who flees Tel Aviv for Paris to start a new life. Desperate to erase his origins, Yoav sees becoming French as his only hope for salvation. Step one is to replace his language. From now on, he will not utter a single word of Hebrew. Based on writer-director Lapid's own experiences, "Synonyms" explores the challenges of putting down roots in a new place.
