one life is not enough

fien de la mar (1898-1965)

documentary, 71'

fien de la mar (1898-1965) was an exceptional actress: cabaret performer, singer, but also a great tragedienne. she did not care for the distinction between high and low art and could excel in both. her life and her acting were closely related; it became a tragedy that at moments gave her roles an ominous shimmer.
