The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. The film portrays the idyllic life that the family of the Nazi commandant enjoyed in a sumptuous house next to the concentration camp right in the middle of the Holocaust.

Critics

“A deeply chilling and precisely engineered nightmare that is the best and most important film of 2023, our shared year of blind eyes and buried heads. ”

Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

“It’s a claustrophobic and uncomfortable viewing experience because it doesn’t ask for our sympathy—it confronts us with our passivity”

Joey Shapiro, Chicago Reader

“The horror is unseen but underlying, and all the more arresting because of it.”

Alex Godfrey, Empire Magazine
