The Zone of Interest is a film about blind eyes and deaf ears, about horrors kept just out of sight and mostly out of mind. It follow’s a few weeks in the life of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höss and his wife Hedwig. They are striving to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden beside the camp.

The film’s boldest and most effective stylistic risk is that it never goes inside the gates of Auschwitz. We see only a familiar structure and its barbed wire fences looming just beyond the backyard wall, occasionally emitting plumes of smoke. Screams and bursts of gunfire echo faintly in the distance, almost but not quite out of earshot. We can barely hear dogs barking and commands being shrieked, all while the Höss family goes about their dull, daily routines.
