With his masterful new film 'Sunset' now showing at London Film Festival, rediscover László Nemes’ courageous and unflinching Holocaust drama, 'Son of Saul' - winner of the 2017 BAFTA and 2016 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Saul Ausländer is a member of the Sonderkommando, the Jewish prisoners forced to assist in the machinery of the Nazi concentration camps. While at work, he discovers the body of a boy he recognises as his son. As the Sonderkommando plan a rebellion, Saul vows to carry out an impossible task: to save the child's body from the flames and to find a rabbi to recite the mourner’s Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial. Anchored by a riveting and intensely brave performance from newcomer Géza Röhrig, 'Son of Saul' is a remarkable exploration of one of humanity’s darkest moments. Visceral, gripping and immensely powerful, it is one of the boldest and most remarkable debuts in recent memory - and is already being heralded as a masterpiece of world cinema. ★★★★★ "By any standards, this would be an outstanding film, but for a debut it is remarkable" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Cinema at its most powerful, artful and stimulating" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out ★★★★★ "A Holocaust movie unlike any other" - Wendy Ide, The Times
