What is the analog for functions of a complex variable?

This is my suspicion: if f and g are nonvanishing complex-valued functions on some connected subset of C, and |f(z)| = |g(z)| for all z in D, what can be said of f and g? Is it necessary that f = cg, where |c| = 1? If this is right, how would one prove it?

Thanks in advance for any help.
