Impressive and exceptional war drama like we have never seen before. Nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture.
Director Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin) shows the banality of evil. 'A merciless masterpiece' (five stars - BBC). Camp commander Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel) lives with his family in a beautiful, spacious staff house with a large garden, which borders the wall of Auschwitz. His wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller, Anatomy of a Fall) feels like royalty. In this environment she creates a paradise for her family, and she will not let this be taken away from her anymore.
The Zone of Interest was awarded the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival and is the UK's Oscar entry for Best International Film. The film received three Golden Globe Award nominations and five Oscar nominations. Glazer loosely based his work on the book of the same name by Martin Amis.
