Golden Voices

A whimsical triumph straight from this year’s Jewish International Film Festival, GOLDEN VOICES is a hilarious comedy inspired by the experiences of writer/director Evgeny Ruman.

Victor (Vladimir Friedman) and Raya Frenkel (Mariya Belkina) were the golden voices of Soviet film dubbing for decades, lending their talent to everything from Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep in Kramer vs. Kramer to helping Fellini launch in the USSR. In 1990, with the collapse of the Soviet Union in their wake, the Frenkels immigrate to Israel along with thousands of Soviet Jews before being forced to adjust to the inevitable culture shock. Both in their sixties and ill equipped to adapt to the West, Victor’s and Raya’s attempts to use their vocal training to find a place in this exciting new world results in a series of bizarre events that bring about the beginning of an unexpected new chapter of their lives.
