The Zone of Interest movie poster

BAFTA winner for Best Non-English Film and nominated for FIVE Oscars including Best Picture, Best International Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Director.

Jonathan Glazer’s (Under the Skin) breath-stopping Cannes award-winner, The Zone of Interest, is a hypnotic and strikingly original film that dismantles human darkness in the face of evil.

The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.

Cast: Christian Friedel, Sandra Hüller, Ralph Herforth, Max Beck, Lilli Falk

Director: Jonathan Glazer

★★★★★ "A landmark movie, hugely important, that’s unafraid of difficult ideas." TIMES UK

★★★★★ "It’s provocative in a deeply intelligent way." TIME OUT

★★★★★ "Glazer raises the question of how much suffering we are all willing to ignore, just because it's happening in another part of the world, or just outside our homes, or beyond our own zone of interest." BBC.COM

★★★★★ "Glazer has achieved something much greater than just making the monstrous mundane — by rendering such extreme inhumanity ordinary he reawakens us to its true horror." FINANCIAL TIMES

★★★★★ "Through painstaking framing and sound design, its horrors gnaw at the edge of every shot." DAILY TELEGRAPH UK

★★★★★ "The banal, systematic horror of Auschwitz is dealt with expertly by the English director" EVENING STANDARD

★★★★★ "The horror is unseen but underlying, and all the more arresting because of it." EMPIRE MAGAZINE

★★★★★ "I left it shaken and stricken; it stayed with me, stubbornly, over the months that followed." OBSERVER UK

★★★★ "The film is so well-made, so deliberately cautious about showing actual atrocities, that the imagination works overtime." OBSERVER

★★★★ "Focusing on the everyday domesticity of the Auschwitz commandant’s family might only reflect the horror indirectly, but the film pulls the banality of evil into pin-sharp focus" GUARDIAN
