I Can't Forget

Amazing performance from Barbara (the chanteuse name of Monique Serf, 1930 - 1997) on a song called 'Tu Ne Te Souviendras Pas' ('You Will Not Remember'), one of those sardonic, cynical,heartbreaking ballads of resignation the French do so well. The performance is so simple, yet her angular head movements, bird like features and dark eyes show the desperation behind her odd smile. Haunting.
