Son of Saul (2015)

Hungary | 107 min | R | 35mm | Dir. László Nemes

October 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Saul Ausländer is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child's body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner's Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial. (Sony Pictures Classics official website)

"Brutal and brilliant, 'Son of Saul' may be the most harrowing film ever made about the Holocaust, which should give you an idea of how hard it is to watch." - Tom Long (Detroit News)
