CAST: Geza Rohrig, Levente Molnar, Urs Rechn DIRECTOR: Laszlo Nemes 2016 Oscar Winner for Best Foreign Language Film:  In Hungarian, Yiddish, German, Russian, French

In the horror of 1944 Auschwitz, a prisoner forced to burn the corpses of his own people finds moral survival upon trying to salvage from the flames the body of a boy he takes for his son.

Nemes has made a gripping film almost entirely free of movie heroics or placating visual strategies. It's not an easy experience. Nor should it be.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
Easily the most exciting new film I've seen over the past year.
