About the Film
The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife, Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.
The Reviews Are In
"It's a claustrophobic and uncomfortable viewing experience because it doesn't ask for our sympathy—it confronts us with our passivity."
-Joey Shapiro, Chicago Reader
"The film is not just about a Nazi couple, or even just about the banality of evil. Rather, it is about the ways in which people close themselves off to destabilizing truths."
-Natalia Winkelman, Boston Globe
