    • Synopsis
    • PICTURES OF ANNA is a tragic love story set against the backdrop of World War Two and Britain's treatment of Germans and Italians living in the UK in 1940 as Britain went to war against Germany and then Italy. Anna, 26, and Guy, a photographer, are a young German couple estranged from their families and having settled in Britain, are torn apart when Guy is arrested on their wedding day and indefinitely detained as an 'enemy of the state' under Defence Regulation 18B. Anna flees to London where she hides and falls in love with a Swiss artist, Mark, and that relationship is also needlessly wrenched apart. The story narrates how lives were unnecessarily maimed by the paranoia and politics at the time.
