Movie Summary

Director:
Alain Resnais
Released:
1955
Rating:
Not Available
Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz. One of the first cinematic reflections on the horrors of the Holocaust, NIGHT AND FOG (Nuit et brouillard) contrasts the stillness of the abandoned camps' quiet, empty buildings with haunting wartime footage. With NIGHT AND FOG, Resnais investigates the cyclical nature of man's violence toward man and presents the unsettling suggestion that such horrors could come again. Francois Truffaut once called NIGHT AND FOG "the greatest film ever made."
