DVD Movie Review: Gloomy Sunday

DVD Review: Gloomy SundaySynopsis:
Gloomy Sunday, winner of major German film awards and an art-house favorite that ran 70 weeks in Boston, hits all the right notes with its poignant, glowingly shot tale set in Budapest during the Holocaust and, like Schindler's List and The Pianist, 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. And from the opening scene to the deft twist ending, that power is extraordinary.

Cast: Ben Becker, Erika Marozsan, Joachim Krol, Stefano Dionisi

Critic Quotes and Reviews:
A beautiful period piece, set against one of the world's glorious cities, adding poignancy. Twists and turns heighten a gradually accruing effect, building to a risky moment of truth, a coup de theatre that is as daring as it is satisfying. -- Los Angeles Times' Kevin Thomas
