Gross und Klein is a respectable four-hour drama based on a play by Botho Strauss about a woman, Lotte (Edith Clever), and her relationships with a wide range of characters in Saarbruecken. Lotte interacts with liberal artists and a conservative elite, and along the way, the sorrows and joys of life are brought forward. With excellent acting to complement a good script, the four hours go by quickly, though the film is more like a stageplay since the camera is stationary and the actors perform in the manner of theater thespians.
