It's never too late to learn about the Holocaust, or to honour its victims, as the teachers and pupils of a middle school in Tennessee decided to do some years ago. Trying to represent the enormity of the murdered six million Jews, they began collecting paper clips and soon found their project attracting the interest of Holocaust survivors and the media. The impulse behind it is impeccable, but the treatment by directors Joe Fab and Elliot Berlin prostratingly mawkish and banal - the promotion of inter-faith tolerance may warm your heart, but the violins weeping away in the background are enough to set your teeth on edge.
