Synopsis

A series of intimate micro-dramas in which marshalore sings old songs from the 1930s and ’40s, this autobiographical narrative depicts the pressures of conforming to the stereotypes of feminine beauty. Although the lyrics are banal, the melody from the song You Must Remember This and the remarkable camera-work combine to create an entrancing atmosphere.
