Distant Voices, Still Lives

Director Terence Davies reconstructs the lives of a working class family in Liverpool in postwar England through the use of popular songs. Over 40 hits from the Forties and Fifties illustrate the private history of this family of five. A truly impressive motion picture, impeccably shot and staged, that offers a touch of grandeur to everyday lives. With Freda Dowie, Peter Postlethwaite.
