In this profound, meditative and immersive film, Jonathan Glazer focuses on Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höss and his wife as they strive to build a dream life next to the concentration camp with no regard to the horrors unfolding next door. Together with a unique and innovative work on sound and image, the film is brilliantly carried by the character of the wife played by the outstanding Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a Fall) whose coldness and oblivious state enhance the unsettling effect of the whole story.

Winner of the 76th Cannes Grand Prix, of 3 BAFTA Awards (Outstanding British film, Best film not in the English language, Best sound) and the UK entry to the Academy Awards for Best International Feature, The Zone of Interest magnificently explores the darkness and boundaries of the human soul.
