László Nemes’ critical hit at Cannes – winner of the Grand Prix and 2016 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film – focuses on Saul, a Jewish member of the Sonderkommando in an unnamed death camp, who is determined to give his dead son a dignified burial. Avoiding the temptation to divide protagonists into good and bad, Nemes paints a disturbingly nuanced picture of the moral imperatives and daily realities faced by all.
