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

"Yllättäjä oscar-voittaja tuli hieman puskista, ja koska katson pakonomaisesti kaikki natsi-saksaan sijoittuvat elokuvat, katsoin myös tämän. Sonderkommando asetelma on aina kiehtonut ja dokumentinomainen kuvaustyyli erittäin tyylikästä."

"10.7. Parin vuoden takainen pikkuhitti onnistui vakuuttamaan etenkin kuvauksensa osalta. Kasvojen lähikuvia painottava 4:3-kuvasuhde yhdistettynä usein sumennettuihin taustoihin toimi erittäin hyvin kuvastaessaan hahmojen mekaanista toimintaa tilanteessa, jossa ihmisen mieli ei enää pysty käsittelemään tapahtuvia kauheuksia, vaan kaikesta tulee omituista massaa, jonka keskellä pitää pystyä vaeltamaan eteenpäin. Karmivuuksien tapahtuminen taustalla tekee Son of Saulista todenmukaise"

"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"

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 this impressive movie. To be honest, I'm not sure if you can get into this movie if your knowledge about the holocaust doesn't go beyond 'The Schindler's List' or what they teach you in school.
