WARNING: THIS IS A VERY INTENSE HOLOCAUST FILM.
Winner Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival 2015
“This indelible portrait of Auschwitz in the latter days of WWII sticks to the limited vantage of a Jewish prisoner who, immune to either hope or fear, becomes bent on carrying out a single, desperate act of moral survival. The result is as grim and unyielding a depiction of the Holocaust as has yet been made on that cinematically overworked subject — a masterful exercise in narrative deprivation and sensory overload that recasts familiar horrors in daringly existential terms. ” -Justin Chang, Variety
“An Auschwitz-set drama that’s numbing, provocative and impossible to unsee.” – David Calhoun, Time Out
“Dominated by a groundbreaking performance by Geza Rohrig, SON OF SAUL re-defines the Holocaust-drama genre, infusing it with new urgency, visual energy and moral meaning. ” – Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
Rated R for disturbing violent content, and some graphic nudity.
Language: Hungarian, Yiddish, German, Polish (English subtitles)
