War Stories is a documentary in which seven women speak about their lives and loves during the Second World War.
One at time, seven elderly women face the camera and speak about the impact on their lives of World War II. There are newsreel clips and vivid contributions from storytellers’ photo albums, but what renders these War Stories enthralling is more fundamental allure of revelation stacked upon revelation. Tales that lead us with such plain assurance to the storyteller’s heartfelt truth make spellbound children of us all.
