On a stormy night in the mountains of Greece, a pair of wayward young people abandon their newborn child. Taken in by a family of farmers, Ion grows up without knowing his father or mother. Years later, after a tragic accident, he is sent to prison, where he meets Iro. The two form a connection, expressed through music, that will, by turns, haunt them and uphold them the rest of their days. Freely inspired by the story of Oedipus, Angela Schanelec’s latest is as terrifying as myth and as gentle as a folk song. A quietly colossal achievement from one of contemporary cinema’s preeminent image makers.

"An immaculate work of cinema...exquisitely shot and unimpeachably assembled." —Nicolas Rapold, ArtForum

"The celebration of a vision Schanelec has meticulously honed over the past three decades, like a late sonata by a composer who has fully come into their voice." —Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

"For the few, the brave, the intellectually reckless who are immune to accusations of overthinking things, MUSIC is entertaining, giving a sudden, difficult workout to a part of your brain that may have become a little atrophied — at least since the last Angela Schanelec film… [A] scintillating example of film’s uncanny ability to transcend itself, to operate on planes above, below and in between the images and soundscapes of which it is composed." —Jessica Kiang, Variety

"MUSIC crashes into us like a star out of orbit." —Cahiers du Cinema
