Dimitrij Liebermann is Jewish and hits Tobi after he verbally abuses him and makes fun of the Holocaust. Dimitri isn’t necessarily sorry, but has to apologise to Tobi. On his way to his schoolmate’s, Dimitrji meets a number of Germans and is repeatedly confronted with his German-Jewish identity.

Excerpt from the jury’s statement
Masel Tov Cocktail is an astonishingly successful production: fast-paced, without being fleeting; serious yet full of humour; both thought-provoking and entertaining. This film skillfully uses clichés, exposes stereotypes and is truly provocative. A great film.
