Everything is Illuminated
Bloke goes to Ukraine to trace his family history and find out what happened to them during WW2. There he meets Alex, aspiring translator and his Grandad, who together with the dog Sammy Davies Jnr, Jnr act as his guides.
Hmm. Bit weird. Enjoyed it very much to start with - some very funny bits as they struggle with language and culture problems. But when he gets to the more recent history it got very disjointed and hard to keep track of everyone.
