Our take

Just a decade after the liberation of France and the end of World War II, Alain Resnais (Hiroshima mon amour) made Night and Fog, the most acclaimed of his documentary shorts. An immensely powerful, stark and startling film that dauntlessly depicts the many atrocities and horrors of the Holocaust.
