This suspenseful comedy-thriller stars Vincent Elbaz (Would I Lie to You) as Gilbert Perez, a brilliant con artist who manages to trick employees of large French companies into stealing money from their employers. As the police narrow in on him, he finds refuge and new adventures amidst the French community of Tel Aviv. With a cheeky leading man, a funny, mind-blowing story, a great feel for decor, wardrobe and music, a vivacious supporting cast and all the infectious energy you could hope for, Thank You For Calling is the most charming and buoyant film you will see all year.
