10th Annual Houston Jewish Film Festival Founders' Night: Gloomy Sunday (Ein Lied Von Liebe Und Tod)


Gloomy Sunday was a favorite at the First Annual Jewish Film Festival, so it is only fitting to repeat its showing as a tribute to the founders of the festival, Doreen Joffe and Sharon Kagan.

Budapest, 1930s. Laxzlo runs a restaurant; he loves the hostess, Ilona. Both are marginally Jewish. Andreas, the piano player, also loves Ilona and has composed a haunting song for her titled "Gloomy Sunday." To complicate matters further, a German businessman, Hans, is smitten with Ilona, who rejects him. War breaks out. Hans is now a Nazi in charge of the final solution in Hungary.
