The Big Picture

  • The Zone of Interest takes a unique approach to the Holocaust by focusing on the mundane lives of the Höss family, reminding us of the atrocities on the other side of the wall.
  • Director Jonathan Glazer effectively builds a sense of terror without showing the actual events at Auschwitz, relying on the audience's familiarity with the story.
  • Christian Friedel and Sandra Hüller deliver unnerving performances, capturing the dread and acceptance of their savage characters.
