Directed by Jonathan Glazer│ Drama │ UK, USA, Poland, 2023 │ 105 Mins │PG 13 │Subtitled

In the grounds of Auschwitz, commandant Rudolf Höss and his family live in luxury. As unspeakable atrocities unfold in the concentration camp, the family members go about their everyday lives – wilfully ignoring the eerie, ever-present sounds of the terrible things happening just over their garden wall. A deeply unsettling, remarkably directed film from filmmaker Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin).

The Zone of Interest – director Jonathan Glazer’s first film since 2013’s Under the Skin – is a deeply unsettling, masterfully directed cinematic study of the banality of evil. Loosely based on the novel by Martin Amis, Glazer’s film refuses to show the audience the atrocities of the Holocaust. Instead, we’re kept at a devastating, chilling remove – artfully enhanced by pristine camerawork, extraordinary sound design and an eerie, bone-shaking score from Mica Levi.

A devastating Holocaust drama like no other”   The Hollywood Reporter
