Evensong

Film
Irish diva (Laye) is moulded by Viennese impresario (Kortner) into a top opera star and romancer of the Austrian nobility, but refusal to acknowledge the approach of her twilight years leads to an inevitable fall from grace. A touch more sophisticated than the usual run of homegrown '30s musicals, genre specialist Saville's film benefits no end from the commanding and courageous central performance.
