Martin Simmonds (Tim Roth) has been haunted throughout his life by the mysterious disappearance of his “brother” and extraordinary best friend, a Polish Jewish virtuoso violinist, Dovidl Rapaport, who vanished shortly before the 1951 London debut concert that would have launched his brilliant career.
“A profound, affecting and beautifully told chronical of faith, family, obsession and the language of music.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
Thirty-five years later, Martin discovers that Dovidl (Clive Owen) may still be alive, and sets out on an obsessive intercontinental search to find him and learn why he left. Constructed like a detective mystery on a grand scale, The Song of Names is an emotionally devastating tale of family, obligation, ambition, and friendship, driven by exquisite music. From celebrated filmmaker Francois Girard (The Red Violin; Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould), with music by Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings trilogy). (Dir. by Francois Girard, 2019, Canada/Hungary, 113 mins., Rated PG-13)
