Movie Info

Night and Fog represents the peak of director Alain Resnais' activities as a short-subject filmmaker. Framed as a documentary, the film is an unsettling view of life inside the Nazi concentration camps of World War II. As he would in his later features (Hiroshima Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad et. al.) Resnais toys with chronology, with memory becoming present reality and vice versa at several critical junctures. Jean Cayrol, later responsible for the script of Resnais' Muriel (1962), wrote

Only half an hour long, this is the greatest film ever made about the concentration camps.

A haunted litany about unspeakable events barely a decade old, the madness of history and the sin of forgetfulness

One of the greatest documentaries ever made.

Still remains timely.

Regardless, this is a film that must be viewed. It's almost a prerequisite to being human to have to come face to face with your own capacity for inhumanity. Only after you recognize it can you deal with it.

Provokes contemplative self-inquiry, and moves us beyond our initial and immediate emotionally simplistic knee-jerk horror and disgust.

Of all the films made about the Holocaust, Alain Resnais' Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard) is quite possibly the most moving and thought-provoking,

When it comes to Holocaust documentaries, there is simply no further word than Alain Resnais's Night and Fog.

A landmark documentary that is arguably the foremost film ever made about the Holocaust.

Audience Reviews for Nuit et Brouillard (Night and Fog)

A film that is hard but necessary to watch. Extremely powerful.

Easily the most unforgettable and moving documentary you will ever see. The sober narrative contrasted with the grave footage of Nazi atrocities makes for a very moving experience. The camera also glides over the ruins which perfectly augments the narrative's meditation on who is culpable for these crimes. The runtime is short, but the impact lasts long after your viewing.

Powerful, gruesome documentary footage of Nazi concentration camps. A hard but necessary watch, should be required viewing for students the world over.

It's brilliant, but I can't say I really liked it. Probably the roughest film I've ever seen. Not for the faint of heart.
