Nuit et brouillard Night and fog by Alain Resnais ( Visual )
37 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Called the greatest film of all time by director Francois Truffaut, this legendary documentary from 1955, was directed by Alain Resnais, one of the pivotal figures in the 'New Wave' that revolutionised French cinema in the 1950s. Though only thirty minutes in length, the film is devastating in its impact. Night and Fog refers to the arrival of prisoners in Auschwitz under the cover of darkness and also the ultimate failure of the Nazis at Nuremberg to take responsibility for it. Written by Jean Cayrol, a holocaust survivor, and poetically narrated by Michel Bouquet, its gruesome images seem like a surreal nightmare."--Kanopy
