2016 Academy Award-Winner for Best Foreign Language Film!
In this searing drama, a concentration camp inmate tasked with burning the dead discovers the body of his young son, and must choose between participating in the clandestine uprising being planned among the prisoners, or securing a proper Jewish burial for his child.

Winner of the the Academy Award, Golden Globe & Grand Prix, SON OF SAUL is set in October 1944 at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Saul (Géza Röhrig) is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child’s body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner’s Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial. With the camera primarily on Saul, viewers are plunged directly into the heart of a concentration camp. SON OF SAUL doesn’t tell the story of the Holocaust, but of one man caught in a dreadful situation. Forced to lose his humanity, he finds moral survival in the salvaging of the boy’s body. A stunning debut for first-time director László NemesSON OF SAUL, is a riveting, unforgettable experience.

“Son of Saul is an immersive experience of the most disturbing kind, an unwavering vision of a particular kind of hell. No matter how many Holocaust films you’ve seen, you’ve not seen one like this.”
– LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Good movies summon up worlds. Son of Saul, a great movie and a debut feature by László Nemes, summons up a world we may think we know from a visual perspective we’ve never encountered — the willed tunnel vision of a Jewish worker in a Nazi death camp.”
– WALL STREET JOURNAL

“Son of Saul is lasting work of art — difficult to watch, impossible to forget.”
– CHICAGO SUN TIMES – RICHARD ROEPER

“It’s that devotion to truth that makes Son of Saul such a difficult watch — and also one of year’s most important masterpieces.”
– THE WRAP

“It’s dizzying and tremendously sad, but simultaneously exhilarating due to Nemes’ complete control of his environment, and complete merging of his narrative and compositional elements. It isn’t just a unique story, it’s a unique execution.”
– THE VERGE

“It’s not an easy sit, but it is a riveting, effective one, and a genuine change from the familiar conventions of most holocaust dramas.”
– NPR

“Röhrig isn’t an experienced actor. In fact, he’s a poet and a former kindergarten teacher, living in the Bronx. But that could be what makes the performance so magnetic.”
– TIME

“This is a small, tight, starkly claustrophobic film, closer in impact to Elie Wiesel’s first-person account of the concentration camps, “Night,” than to the artful, slightly suspect emotional catharsis of director Steven Spielberg’s ‘Schindler’s List.’ “
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“It’s the rarest kind of moviegoing experience: an absolute masterpiece.”
