Nuit et Brouillard (1955)
Dir: Alain Resnais
I don’t think anything I can write can do justice to this film. It is one of the most powerful films that I have ever seen and it has stuck with me more than any other film of the Holocaust. It is a relentless account of the events that took place during the Second World War and should be seen by everyone. Not only does Resnais remind us of the horrors that took place, he asks the most important questions of all: “Who is responsible and, who will keep it from ever happening again?” The film is only a half of an hour long, but it is the most important thirty minutes of cinema that most of us will ever witness.
