Ein Lied von Liebe und Tod - Gloomy Sunday

Deutschland Ungarn 1998/1999 Spielfilm

Summary

Gloomy Sunday
Budapest in the thirties. The restaurant owner Laszlo hires the pianist András to play in his restaurant. Both men fall in love with the beautiful waitress Ilona who inspires András to his only composition. His song of "Gloomy Sunday" is, at first, loved and then feared, for its
melancholic melody triggers off a chain of suicides. The fragile
balance of the erotic ménage à trois is sent off kilter when the German
Hans goes and falls in love with Ilona as well.
