About The Zone Of Interest

Jonathan Glazer investigates the domestic dream of Nazi Germany in this penetrating rethink of Holocaust cinema, inspired by the Martin Amis novel.

Rudolf, Hedwig and their family live in 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.
