Not that she gets a whole lot of range to play in this her second feature - in places her character manages to even become annoying - but she acts faultlessly, and sings… well, words fail me. How can you go wrong with all-round talent like that? Even an unengaging tale about two boring old orchestras can't dampen the mood.
It's amazing to watch and hear this teenager perform knowing that, less than a month ago, she sadly passed away at the age of 91.
No Deanna, you'll always be young.
