Nuit et brouillard Réalisé par Alain Resnais
Resnais’ picture certainly established a standard point of perspective — the retrospective reckoning — that would be adopted and focused further not only in the filmmaker’s subsequent work but in that of Lanzmann, Marker, Godard, Akerman, and others. A method of forensic-science: train the camera, magnify the evidence. Observe the brilliant opening shot upon docile pasture, as the camera cranes down like the very Geist or omniscient prodigy only to reveal barbed wire fences in parallax relation.

In February 1956, Truffaut wrote in Cahiers du cinéma of “the most noble and necessary film ever made.” It was only thirty minutes long, featured no stars, and was directed by a young film editor whose name was little known outside the intellectual circles of the Left Bank of Paris. Sixty years later, that work, Night and Fog, is generally acknowledged as one of the great classics of cinema, and its restoration now allows us to appreciate fully this remarkable encounter between film and history.

Rather than proffering a thesis about the events, as one might expect from a more conventional documentary, Resnais and Cayrol test the limits of cinema’s capacity for response to both tragedy and misery by contesting the aesthetic norms of dealing with taboo subject matter.
