The Zone of Interest. 2023. USA/Great Britain/Poland. Written and directed by Jonathan Glazer. With Sandra Hüller, Christian Friedel, Freya Kreutzkam. DCP. Courtesy A24. In German; English subtitles. 105 min.
In adapting Martin Amis’s novel, writer-director Jonathan Glazer has accomplished numerous incredible feats; chief among them, he has crafted a shocking portrait of complicity. Set in an austere, elegant villa whose garden shares a wall with the extermination camp at Auschwitz, the film focuses on a family of strivers, led by the commandant of Auschwitz, who see his position and the luxuries it provides them as a sign of their well-earned rise in society. The commandant’s wife (a chilling Sandra Huller) understands full well how her privilege has been obtained, and she will fight any effort that would deny her access to the life she now enjoys. The Zone of Interest is a visceral indictment of our ability to ignore the evils from which we benefit.
