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 the narration for Night and Fog. The film was originally released in France as Nuit et Brouillard. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Nuit et Brouillard (Night and Fog)

½

Resnais made this disturbing 32-minute documentary only 10 years after the liberation of the Nazi camps, exposing in devastating details a horrific monstrosity that must never be forgotten and turning it into a universal message to remind us that it could happen anywhere.

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.
