The film’s harrowing storyline takes place at Auschwitz in October 1944 and follows Saul Ausländer, a Hungarian prisoner, who tries to arrange a proper Jewish funeral for a boy he believes to be his son. A debut for writer-director László Nemes, the film won praise for its uncompromisingly transparent depiction of the holocaust, channelled through the struggles of one individual.
As well as winning an Academy Award, the film also won a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language film, and Volcano and Golden Reel awards for its sound design and mixing.
