Night and Fog (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on October 20, 2011

I’ve seen an awful lot of Holocaust documentaries, this is the only one I’ve seen more than once.  My third time, actually.  And probably my last, because it’s so terribly upsetting.  A mere 32 minutes, but Resnais concentrates so much sorrow, pain, and cruelty into it that it’s almost unbearable.  You just don’t get used to seeing this stuff.  I felt at times the musical score was a bit tacky, or at least unnecessary, but the overall package is very powerful and a haunting reminder of how evil humanity can be.  Rating: Very Good
