The film was one of the earliest cinematic efforts to describe the Holocaust, and it is still quoted extensively by succeeding directors, including Steven Spielberg in Schindler’s List.
1950 | Nominee: Best Film from any Source
1949 | 3rd place: Best Foreign Language Film
In my opinion, this film is worth Resnais's Night and Fog if you're interested in the cinematographical approach of the Holocaust. Highly recommended.
Really disturbing in the best way possible!
