Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin, Sexy Beast) delivers a chilling masterpiece unlike any other
WWII film, as the camera cooly spies on the daily mechanics of a German family living next door
Winner of the Grand Prix Cannes 2023, this haunting and unique film, follows a seemingly everyday family mundanely crafting a dream home. A home that shares a wall with Auschwitz during WWII where patriarch Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel) methodically works, and the atrocities within earshot are ignored by the family (including Hoss’ wife, played by the award-winning Sandra Hüller)
. Generating a haunting mood by what is unseen rather than seen, Glazer crafts a scalpel sharp examination of how banal evil can be, that keeps audiences tight in its atmospheric grip.
Nominated for three Golden Globes including Best Motion Picture, Drama
