a dozen stories, all at the same time
29 April 2019 | by mnreitSee all my reviews

Saw this last night. One women's personal journey to learn more about her great grandfather's lost art work, from between the world wars. Yes, against the backdrop of the Holocaust, but not another "Holocaust" movie - not at all. More about the artwork itself and the ability of art to connect us to another time and place, to illuminate who we are and our relationships, today. A story about family, history, deprivation, incredible acts of kindness and love.
