Book Review: Moving Pictures

This graphic novel by Kathryn and Stuart Immonen is a diverting hour. It's about a Canadian woman working as a Louvre curator in WWII France and a German she meets. It works well as a graphic novel. There are some great snippets of dialogue and nice visual transitions in some points, and I like it when the medium is used for an understated story like this. However, I can't help but feel like it doesn't quite come together because in some parts it's too understated. Still worth a check-out from the library.
