Saul is a sonderkommando in Auschwitz, forced to assist in the disposal of the exterminated. When he recognises a boy who he takes to be his son, he tries to find a rabbi to give the body a proper Jewish burial.
The fluid camerawork truly portrays the horror and despair of the death camps. This brilliant debut feature from Hungarian director Nemes won the Grand Prix at Cannes and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
