Gloomy Sunday May 28, 2013

In the scene where we first see Oskar Schindler (the one that focuses on his hands) there is a piece of music playing in the background. This is a slightly stylized version of a ‘classic’ called Gloomy Sunday (Rezső Seress) and is morbidly appropriate as a prelude.

There was a film made in 2003 called Gloomy Sunday about the origins of the piece and it has some connections to Schindler’s List. It is worth watching – but only over a very melancholy weekend (and it has subtitles)
