All Things Great & Small
In one scene, a disheveled writer lies clothed and collapsed on a bed surrounded by empty wine bottles and scrunched up papers. In another, blue-eyed, blond-haired girls exercise in a Nazi era gym facility. There is more. Medics surround a boy on a stretcher in a field hospital whilst...
