Dir Jonathan Glazer / US/UK/Poland 2024 / 105 mins

Based on the novel by Martin Amis, British director Jonathan Glazer’s multiple award-winning drama about the family life of Auschwitz’s commandant is an unforgettable masterpiece.

The film focuses on the daily detail of the lives of an upwardly mobile Nazi couple Rudolf Höss and his wife Hedwig and their five children in their idyllic villa in the countryside outside the walls of Auschwitz and, without ever crossing the walls, powerfully evokes the horror within the camp.

The Zone of Interest features outstanding performances from Christian Friedel as Höss and Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a Fall) as Hedwig. Subtitled.

For me, this is not a film about the past.  It’s trying to be about now, and about us and our similarity to the perpetrators, not our similarity to the victims.’  Jonathan Glazer.
