This haunting and oppressive animation represents a daring attempt to portray not the reality of the camps, but their atmosphere.
Borowczyk is most famous for his approach of filming provocative material with “inappropriate” style. While that accusation would later be made against sex in his films, this also can be seen here in his animation of camp experience. Terry Gilliam named it one of the best animated films of all time!
