Best film 2019 International Festival of Independent Cinema.
Graeme Tuckett, StuffÂ 4.5/5 Stars:Â “For Naama Preis’ performance as Anat, for a startlingly good soundtrack of classical and original compositions, for the formal beauty of cinematographer Meidan Arama’s framing and for the cool intelligence of the script, God of the Piano is a keeper.”

For Israeli mother Anat, music is everything. Having never been able to reach her father’s musical standards, she rests her hopes on the child she’s about to have. When the baby is born deaf, Anat succumbs to extreme measures to keep the dream alive.
