The Zone of Interest
(d. Jonathan Glazer, Great Britain / Poland / USA, 2023, 105 min, in English with Czech subtitles)

The Grand Prix of this year's Cannes Film Festival was awarded by the jury to the adaptation of the famous book of the same name by Martin Amis, who was sent to the other world by an incorruptible fate on the day of the film's world premiere.

Together with his wife Hedwig, he and his wife build a comfortable and orderly life in their luxurious villa and in the vast and meticulously landscaped garden surrounded by a high wall.
