Hollywood stars Tim Blake Nelson and Harvey Keitel have made a controversial Holocaust movie about the Jews who survived the camps by helping the Nazis commit genocide.
The Grey Zone is one of the most fascinating Holocaust films ever made, yet it never reached UK cinemas following its American debut in 2002. While it was released in Israel, Germany and Spain, among other markets, UK distributors baulked at the movie’s unredemptive narrative and stark, despairing tone. This week, it is finally released here on DVD.
