Cinema: Son of Saul

Monday 13th June, 2016 - 20:00

| €6 BOOK TICKETS NOW »

László Nemes’ stunning debut feature takes its title from central character Saul, a Hungarian-Jewish prisoner at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp who, in his job as a Sonderkommando, is forced to assist in the grisly day-to-day management of mass exterminations.

 

When Saul witnesses a young boy briefly surviving the gas chamber, he becomes determined to give the child a proper Jewish burial. First-time actor Géza Röhrig provides the focal point for the film as Saul – the camera rarely strays from his character while he negotiates the intricate workings of the camp in an attempt to carry out this dangerous quest.

One of the most talked-about films of the last year, this is an extraordinary, gripping and powerful piece of work.

By any standards, this would be an outstanding film, but for a debut it is remarkable. Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
