Storyline

The story of five secretive characters, told with Klezmer music. Five 21st century young and not so young men someplace in the world. They are musicians in search for someone and something which might have been born in their imagination. Once upon a time in the beginning of the 20th century there lived a Klezmer musician and storyteller Prince Nazaroff. Many people don’t believe he ever existed, but these five do. They have imagined him, and imagination can be stronger than reality. To this day, Nazaroff lives in them. They can’t except that something could disappear forever. They call themselves ‘The Brothers Nazaroff’. A deeply emotional story told through Klezmer music about identity, emigration, inner emigration, brothers and godbrothers, religion and belief, faith and disbelief. A modern story about our strange world we live in.

Csaba Bereczki was born in 1966 in Nagyvárad, Transilvania, Romania.  Graduated of the Academy of Drama and Film, Budapest as a film director, worked in France from 1994 with Jean-Paul Rappeneau and Tony Gatlif among others. Fools' Song  (2003) is his first feature film co-written by Suzanne Schiffman, Francois Truffaut's long time co-writer. His latest picture Soul Exodus has won an award for the best documentary at the Hungarian Film Awards.
