A recent box office hit and award-winner in Greece, this is a powerful and beautifully rendered telling of war-time romance in Thessaloniki between a Jewish girl and a young resistance fighter. Set against the backdrop of German-occupation, one of them has to make a final and painful decision. Cloudy Sunday is a compelling drama about love, and about the evil and brutality of war, made even more poignant by the wistful songs of famous songwriter Vassilis Tsitsanis and the enchanting classics of Sephardic Jewish music.
