      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Gloomy Sunday is beautiful, well-acted, and every bit as downcast as its title.

      Audience Member My favourite movie of all time! RKH NZ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review a.l.jude p A pleasure to watch movie and it fits above all that category. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Captivating in parts. Good production values and WW2 atmosphere. Except for restaurant setting - cold and bare. Maybe deliberately so? But not my idea of a cosy Hungarian restaurant (maybe I've seen too many Hollywood movies). Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review ma'ark t Strange and thrilling. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful film which is both well-crafted and well-acted. There are a number of themes presented, and everything is tied together through the use of the song "Gloomy Sunday". This has become my favourite German language film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful and lush German drama centered around a love triangle in pre-WWII Hungary. I loved every second of it and it even made me cry. Absolutely fantastic. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

Rated: B May 13, 2009 Full Review Mark Halverson Sacramento News & Review Rated: 4/5 Aug 7, 2008 Full Review Kam Williams Princeton Town Topics Undoubtedly deserves to be added to the ranks of the best Holocaust films ever made.
