This took a little while to get into, partially down to my lamentable lack of knowledge of matters military - rank and so on. Also I found it almost impossible to visualise a camp housing such an astronomical number of people. I had to watch a bit of the film just to get my bearings.But this was a superb story of suffering, near-starvation, survival and wheeler dealing. The relationship between the main characters ('The King' and Peter Marlowe) was fascinating and well drawn. I found myself wondering why, every time he is referred to, Peter Marlowe has his first and second names welded tightly together. He is never 'Peter', never just 'Marlowe', always both. I'm sure there must be some significance to this, I just don't know what it is.
