Di­rected by Lás­zló Nemes. Star­ring Geza Rohrig, Levente Mol­nar Saul, a Son­derkom­mando in Auschwitz, is bat­tered back to re­al­ity when he comes across the body of his son in the gas cham­ber. Un­like Schindler’s List or The Pi­anist, Son of Saul of­fers its vic­tim noth­ing so un­likely as life, but, if Saul can ar­range things, the boy might get a de­cent Jewish burial. Win­ner of an Os­car, a run­ner-up at Cannes, Nemes’s fiercely dy­namic de­but is a master­piece of ten­sion and de­spair. The mo­men­tum is chill­ingly un­stop­pable. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 107 min
