Ein Lied von Liebe und Tod (Gloomy Sunday AKA The Piano Player)


Then you must play it every evening

No royalties!

Miss llona, forgive me...

Wieck. Hans-Eberhard Wieck

This is my last night in Budapest

I wouldn't ask,

but for a strange coincidence

Today is my birthday, too!

Since fate binds us to each other

I wonder if I might photograph you

- Of coures

- Here by the piano?

Goodbye, Mr. Wieck,

a safe journey home


- Which way are you headed?

- To the Hotel Duna

Then we'll keep you company a bit

Mr. Aradi, your piece is wonderful

Do you have a title for it?

Yes, it's called "Gloomy Sunday"

What do you think?

A little melancholy, but pretty

We should record it

With the title gold on red on the label

Miss llona,

Would you be my wife?

What, right now?

Come with me to Berlin

It's the most exciting place on Earth

Germany has awoken

And it's time you went off to sleep

I've started my own company I'm going to

export German craftsmanship all over the world

I'll create the biggest import-export

company in Germany... just for you

I'm sorry I laughed

Miss llona, I love you

Please... marry me


I go this way...

Good night!

Good night, sleep well

Good night. And thank you

Good night

He wrote you a lovely song

I told you he'd fallen for you

And I for him, a bit

Don't worry about me

I've always said

everyone must be free to decide

I'll just keep walking.

That will make it easier for you to decide

It's a strange song

As if someone were saying something

you don't want to hear

But deep inside you know

it's the truth

I have to go now

Herr wieck! Herr Wieck!

Heartache is a terrible thing. I know

You must try and think

of the good things in life

Our Magyar roulade, for instance!

The beef roll you love so much!

Do you want to know the recipe?

You cut a nice tender fillet into thin slices
