BAFTA winner: Outstanding British Film, Film Not In The English Language, Sound.
Rudolf, Hedwig and their family live the perfect suburban dream with their beautifully ordered house and garden. But audible from behind the wall are the sounds of mechanised death, for Rudolf Höss is the commandant of Auschwitz. Jonathan Glazer (Birth, Under the Skin) offers his most ambitious film yet, displacing the usual tropes of the Holocaust drama to depict the pampered life of executioners inhabiting the bubble of bourgeois denial, keeping the reality of genocide hermetically sealed on the outside.
Nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.
