Dir : Erez Pery / Israel, Germany /
In 1946, Rudolf Franz Ferdinand Höss, the longest serving commander of Auschwitz concentration camp, was awaiting trial in a Polish prison. With frustration mounting in Israel that Höss has not confessed, a young and successful investigative judge is appointed to gain the confession. In, what is essentially a two-hander, the tense exchanges dissect the nature of those who were in charge of the extermination camps and their self-justification. A hugely impressive debut from Erez Pery, drawing excellent performances from his two leads, as well as writing a powerful script based on Höss’s book “Commandant of Auschwitz”.
