THE ZONE OF INTEREST (Cert 12A)

THE ZONE OF INTEREST (Cert 12A)

Tuesday, 2nd April 2024 - 7:30pm

TICKETS: £5 (£3 Regal Film Society members/Students/ES40s, Friends of the Regal £4.50)

 

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.

It’s 1915 and Sherlock Holmes has retired to the countryside to keep bees. Dr. John H. Watson however is still living at 21B Baker Street, London, although he too has retired. When he gets a visit from Ada Langtry, an old friend from his East End days, his interest is piqued by her tale of the mysterious goings on at the end of the pier music hall she runs in Foxley-on-Sea on the Thames estuary. There is a war on and most of the country’s able young men have signed up to fight, leaving Ada to recruit her bunch of chorus girls to don their overalls, pick up their hammers and saws and do all the manual work in the theatre as well as flashing their pretty ankles on stage. The last thing they need is some phantom wandering about the wings causing mayhem and making their difficult times even more difficult. Can Doctor Watson and his sidekick Jack Hudson solve the mystery? – Well, they’ve done it before.

The Royal Ballet ENCORE LIVE BROADCAST from The Royal Opera House

PLEASE NOTE START TIME

The Royal Ballet celebrates the breadth of Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s one-act ballets.  Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work.  An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work’s critical success spurred MacMillan to abandon performing in favour of choreography. I t is followed by Different Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Büchner’s play about a soldier’s descent into madness.  The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMillan’s friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.

Five Danses Concertantes (Music by Stravinsky) / Different Drummer Music by Webern and Schoenberg) Requiem (Music by Faure).  Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan. 

Running time 195 minutes, including two intervals.
