Storyline

Controversial director Uwe Boll depicts the harsh reality of the process inside one of the most infamous Nazi death camps by using brutally realistic imagery. Book-ended by documentary footage as well as interviews with German teenagers about what they know about the Holocaust, Boll effectively shows us just how depraved and sadistic life in the camp could be.

Trivia

The film was virtually ignored throughout its production until the release of its first trailer online which was hugely controversial. Director Uwe Boll was lambasted for shooting a short cameo of himself which he included in the trailer in which he plays an SS officer who appears to be falling asleep whilst on guard outside a room in which masses of people are being gassed to death in. Critics attempted to boycott the movie after the release of its gruesome trailer. See more »

Uwe Boll goes worthy
7 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

AUSCHWITZ is something atypical for a Uwe Boll movie. The German director notorious for making B-movies like BLOODRAYNE and IN THE NAME OF THE KING decided to try his hand at making a 'worthy' film a la SCHINDLER'S LIST. The end result is AUSCHWITZ, a look at what went on inside the infamous concentration camp.

Sadly, this film turns out to be just as poor - if not more so - than the rest of Boll's output. It's a short film with a documentary feel that aims to put across to the viewer what it feels like to be gassed in a chamber. It's suitably explicit and depressing, but Boll's direction is so poor and the acting so bad that it lacks the real power needed to convey the message properly. It doesn't help that with the running time coming up so short, Boll pads things out by having random German teenagers chatting about the Holocaust, which is indeed very random.
