Critic's Choice: Son of Saul
Cert: 15 Year: 2016 Length: 107 mins Language: Hungarian & More
Matt Glasby's choice is one of the most powerful films (and Foreign Language Oscar winner) of 2016.
Two days in the life of Saul Auslander, Hungarian prisoner working as a member of the Sonderkommando at one of the Auschwitz crematoria who, to bury the corpse of a boy he takes for his son, tries to carry out his impossible deed: salvage the body and find a rabbi to bury it. While the Sonderkommando is to be liquidated at any moment, Saul turns away from the living and their plans of rebellion to save the remains of a son he never took care of when he was still alive.

I can only say the film is, by its own measure, a triumph. Engineered with virtuoso skill, every moment screams You Are Here. And here is hell.
