I've Heard the Mermaids Singing

1987

Patricia Rozema
Director

Daydreamingy secretary works at an art gallery and is looked down upon by its proprietor who has a secret or two of her own to hide.

Another quirky film beloved of this author (and few others). Nothing much happens and Billy Liar/Walter Mitty were there first but I love the heroine of the piece and the message and the music (Delibes' Lakme) and the silly little bits of low budget magic - the last of which - and you have you have to let the end credits roll - is just beautiful.
