Cloudy Sunday


Directed by: Manoussos Manoussakis
Hudson Valley Premiere
Greece, 2016
Feature, Drama, Holocaust of Jews in Occupied Greece, Love, Greek Music
116 minutes
Greek with subtitles


Based on the book “Ouzeri Tsitsanis”, Cloudy Sunday portrays the destruction of the vibrant, 500-year old Jewish community of Thessaloniki during the brutal German occupation of Greece. A love story and the early years of one of the greatest Greek composer/ librettist/singers of the 20th century, Vasilis Tsitsanis, deepen the story. In fact the title refers to his beloved classic Synnefisameni Kyriaki, one of the songs featured in the film, and the Resistance anthem in WWII. In the small ouzeri (tavern) where Vasilis performs his incredible music, German officers, Greek collaborators, black marketeers, and undercover Resistance fighters mingle. Giorgos, Vassilis’ young brother-in-law, is secretly a radio operator in the Greek Resistance. After a beautiful Jewish girl Estrea is assigned to be his assistant, their forbidden love blooms. But the persistent hunt for the Jews inexorably spreads and suddenly simple choices become life-and-death decisions. Winner 3 Hellenic Film Academy Awards, Best Director and Cinematography Italian Film Festival.
