"Please play the song. You know, the famous one." Jewish restaurateur László and his restaurant pianist András both love beautiful waitress Ilona. And she loves both of them, forming a bittersweet triangle mirrored by the passion and longing of András song "Gloomy Sunday", a tune that becomes a global hit and has a profound, unexpected sway over listeners. The winner of major German film awards, and an art-house favourite, hits all the right notes with its poignant, glowingly shot tale set in Budapest during the Holocaust and filled with the passion and pain of that tragic era. The song itself - recorded by Billie Holliday and other greats - is the stuff of legend, reportedly having a fateful real-life impact similar to that shown on screen. But it's love's power that is ultimately at the heart of this acclaimed film.
