Plot Summary

Two days in the life of Saul Auslander, Hungarian prisoner working as a member of the Sonderkommando at one of the Auschwitz Crematoriums who, to bury the corpse of a boy he takes for his son, tries to carry out his impossible deed: salvage the body and find a rabbi to bury it. While the Sonderkommando is to be liquidated at any moment, Saul turns away of the living and their plans of rebellion to save the remains of a son he never took care of when he was still alive.

Trivia During the preparation, director László Nemes, cinematographer Mátyás Erdély and production designer László Rajk made a pledge to stick to certain rules, or a "dogma", which included: * The film cannot look beautiful. * The film cannot look appealing. * We cannot make a horror film. * Staying with Saul means not going beyond his own field of vision, hearing, or presence. * The camera is his companion, it stays with him throughout this hell.
