The Zone of Interest is an historical drama by director Jonathan Glazer set during World War II

In the grounds of Auschwitz, commandant Rudolf Höss and his family live in luxury. As unspeakable atrocities unfold in the concentration camp, the family members go about their lives – wilfully ignoring the ever-present sounds of terrible things happening just over their garden wall.

The Zone of Interest, director Jonathan Glazer’s first film since 2013’s Under the Skin, is a deeply unsettling and masterfully directed cinematic study of the banality of evil. Loosely based on the novel by Martin Amis, Glazer’s film refuses to show the audience the atrocities of the Holocaust. Instead, we’re kept at a devastating, chilling remove – artfully enhanced by pristine camerawork, extraordinary sound design and an eerie, bone-shaking score from Mica Levi.
