Intense, circular, installed in a 'limbo', at the doors of inferno, with a son or a pretended symbolical son dead but not execrated by nazi autopsia; an uncertain deathline of execution, an incredible job cleaning corpses in Aushwitz; and just a glimpse of heaven in a living boy's face. The smile in the face of Saul is the requime for all this.

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out and, eventually, I was definitely not disappointed by the damned thing. Indeed, it turned out to be the best movie released in 2015, no less than that. I have to admit that I was 'glad' that I saw 'Shoah' not so long ago as it greatly helped me to understand what the hell was going on and to appreciate... read more

"19.2. (Yle Areena) Lue kommenttini Dunkirkista. Saulin poika yrittää auttaa ihmisiä hädän hetkellä. Minua alkaa jo kyllästyttää tämä keskitysleirielokuvien määrä. Jesús teki nämä paljon paremmin. Luin tämän aikana Wikipediasta Auswitchista ja Mengelestä. Taidan jatkossa kiistää holokaustin ja lähteä Brasiliaan etsimään kuoleman enkelin ruumista."

"What a great piece of art. The camera starts rolling and Saul walks towards it. We got a Close-up from our character, and the camera will stay as close as it can to the face of Saul. Lots of long tracking shots and a gut-wrenching story about Capos on the concentration camps during WWII. "

"18.7. (Teatteri/DCP) Kuvaus keskitysleirivangista, joka yrittää saada poikansa haudatuksi juutalaisten rituaalien mukaan ja metsästää koko keston ajan rabbia puuhia hoitamaan. Kiinnostavinta on kuvaus: 4:3:n kuvaformaattiin ahdettu ja pitkälti heiluvissa lähikuvissa menevä jälki esittää hyvinkin varteensa otettavia ajatuksia helvetistä. Suurin lapsus on mielestäni näyttely: jostakin syystä en pystynyt uskomaan tähän muutamia hetkiä kauempaa. Lopusta plussaa, sillä olisin repi"

" Out of the countless movies that have depicted the holocaust, I can't imagine a single one of them feeling more "real" in their depiction than Son of Saul. Probably because the movie shows us every atrocity with a completely unwavering eye, and shows characters who have become so desensitized toward the horrors surrounding them that they show little emotion, rather than the usual Hollywood tearjerker treatment."
