"It's not a holocaust movie" promised my friend L. Oh no? Well ok it's certainly not JUST a Holocaust movie, it's also about love and sex and shame and the oral tradition; but mainly, guess what, it's about guilt and forgiveness and responsibility. It's a typically complex clever David Hare script, the sort that leaves you (well if you're me) with a desperate desire to unravel the various moral threads and work out what the Message is (a bit of a doomed enterprise as there are so many around). I can't go into the plot in detail without massive spoiler alerts, but..

some massive spoilers, natch )
