By Edward Bond.
Cast: 2m., 3w. British critic Irving Wardle in the London Times writes, "Bond sets out to examine the unforgiving hold of the past over the present and the atrocities that coexist with ordinary human kindness." The action centers on an encounter between two women... Xenia, who returns from England to the house where she grew up during the war and which is now occupied by the family's former servant Marthe, and Marthe, who recalls the German occupation when she escaped through Xenia's intervention. But this does not leave her with gratitude. Powerful roles for a small cast. One ext. set.
