One Life Is Not Enough

Fien de la Mar (1898-1965) was an exceptional Dutch 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. In other aspects she was also elusive and could not be classified
By way of film fragments and photos the film evokes an image of the magic of her play, the euphoria and despair in her life. In the soundtrack we hear a play of sound from her film scenes and quotes from interviews about her.
