A group of women who are imprisoned on the island of Sumatra by the Japanese during World War II use music as relieve their misery.
Filmed in sequence.
Love is like a flame, it burns and is visible to all.
Given that each of the women wore a single dress, day in and day out, in a tropical climate for three years straight, the fabric of their clothing would have disintegrated long before that was finally depicted in the film. Also, there's no way that the nuns would have been able to keep the white elements of their habits white, especially given the scarcity of soap.
