In his chilling, oblique study of evil, British director Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin) situates the viewer at the center of frighteningly familiar banality. The Nazi commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp’s Wall. Their domestic life is paradisiacal. Yet over the wall abutting their home, we can see smokestacks, and at night we hear screams and occasional gunshots. Glazer has created a singular, unsettlingly timeless representation of inhumanity and our capacity for indifference in the face of atrocity, filmed and edited with aptly cold precision and punctuated with an ominous score by Mica Levi.

“A deeply chilling and precisely engineered nightmare that is the best and most important film of 2023, our shared year of blind eyes and buried heads.” – Barry Hall, Globe and Mail

“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.”  – Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

“Rather than distancing us from the horror, this chilling, steady-state approach only increases it. What we imagine is going on behind that wall is far more vivid than anything Glazer could show us. – Peter Rainier, Christian Science Monitor

“Through painstaking framing and sound design, its horrors gnaw at the edge of every shot.” – Robbie Collin, The Daily Telegraph
