No excerpt available.
Only half an hour long, this is the greatest film ever made about the concentration camps.
Alain Resnais' Night and Fog (nuit et brouillard) runs barely over 30 minutes, yet it manages to pack a lifetime of horrors into its half-hour length.
Alain Resnais' seminal 1955 documentary... remembers the confusion, and still feels the blind, hurt outrage at humanity's betrayal of itself.
No film about human-made catastrophe has ever been as concise and evocative as Night and Fog, which has been fully restored on Blu-ray from the Criterion Collection.
Audience Reviews for Nuit et Brouillard (Night and Fog)
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.
