What is the significance of Schofield getting his hand cut on the barbed wire in the movie 1917?
That hand pops up many times.
- First the hand gets cut on wire.
- The hand gets shoved into a decaying body
- He visually grabs a rifle with his cut hand, subtle scene but front center.
- He then wraps it.
- At the last scene there is a handshake where the wrapped hand is still quite visible.
I don't think these scenes were done out of coincidence. What did the story teller intend with the wounded hand?
