The Zone of Interest

1h 45m Drama, History, War 2024

AroView: This Academy Award-winner for Best International Feature is a Holocaust film quite unlike any other, detailing the banality of daily life for the family of an SS commandant who oversees the operation of Auschwitz, the notorious death camp in German-Occupied Poland.

The Nazi atrocities are committed in horrifying proximity and yet are literally walled off from their view and from ours, the viewer. It’s an artful conceit that affects as a significant and ever-timely statement about the human capacity for indifference to human suffering.

Adapted by writer-director Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin) from the book by Martin Amis, it’s a must-see for anyone with an interest in this zone of history.

“It’s a shocking piece of audio-visual art that only further cements Glazer as one of the 21st century’s most original and influential filmmakers.” ~Rory O’Connor, The Film Stage

“A prodigiously mounted wonder, gripping and awful and terribly necessary to its time.” ~Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
