Performance - "I Remember You"
This unusual love story by the author of â€œSame Time, Next Year, blends laughter, tears and nostalgic songs to wave a charming valentine to romantic plays of the past. Austin â€œBuddyâ€ Bedford, a lounge pianist/singer who has seen better days, is haunted by a short, passionate affair he enjoyed with an English women 25 years ago. When a young beauty comes into the lounge one rainy evening, he is stunned by her resemblance to his lost love. The affair that ensues is brought to a screeching halt when Austin discovers who she really is. Romantic songs counterpoint the action which reveals the mix of fantasy and reality that forms our lives.
