Gloomy Sunday is a hauntingly beautiful gem of a movie, a unique blending of romance, drama, and tragedy all compressed under the relentless weight of history. The film lives and breathes, transporting viewers back to 1930s Budapest with beautiful cinematography, a fascinatingly poignant musical component, and the most human of characters. Known as the Hungarian suicide song, “Gloomy Sunday” forms the backdrop for the film and its characters. The film ran for a record-breaking 70 weeks in Boston.
