Acclaimed filmmaker François Girard returns to the classical music milieu of The Red Violin. And like that film, The Song of Names sets personal, professional, and family tragedies against sweeping historical events.

Constructed like a detective mystery on a grand scale, the film opens the night of the much-anticipated first public performance by Dovidl Rapoport, a Polish musical prodigy. When he doesn’t show up, his best friend Martin is left to tell the packed theatre that the performance will not go on. Decades later, an adult Martin (Tim Roth, Luce, October Gale), serving as a judge in a musical competition, watches a young student prepare to play in Dovidl’s unique style.

This moment sends Martin, over the objections of his wife Helen, on a transcontinental search. As the mystery of the disappearance unravels, Martin finds himself consumed by memories of the deep bond between the two boys - and also uncovering elements of Dovidl’s tormented life that Martin simply couldn’t have fathomed at the time.

“With a score by the legendary Howard Shore, the music in THE SONG OF NAMES is remarkable. It lays the emotional foundation for an epic about the pursuit of beauty and the fragility at the heart of every friendship.” –
