A recent box office hit and award-winner in Greece, this is a powerful and beautifully rendered tale of war-time romance in Thessaloniki between a Jewish girl and a Christian resistance fighter. Set against the backdrop of German-occupation, the young lovers are forced to make some painful decisions.
The film’s compelling story and stunning cinematography are paired with an outstanding soundtrack inspired by the songs of Vassilis Tsitsanis, including his famous composition, “Cloudy Sunday,” which gives the film its title.
