László Nemes’s holocaust drama Son of Saul has been on our absolute must see watch list ever since it came out and some time ago we finally had the opportunity to see it. Naturally we could not wait to sit down and pour our thoughts out of it.
The strange thing about it however was that I happened to be visiting in Israel at the moment when we did our Skype talk, which brought the effect of the film to another emotional level. Our discussion drifted apart from the movie to topics about faith, humanity and generational aftermath and trauma.
Spoilers: We don’t spoil anything about the plot.
