Brilliant
8 April 2017 | by bones-203-923245See all my reviews

A story from views usually unknown and too easy forgotten. Portrait with a real story and how easy "dog eats dog". The factions how shallow they are is depicted properly. As it was everywhere during the WW2. The eels survived.. The grit and do and helplessness is also well described. Well worth the view.
