The Photographer of Mauthausen. Based on the real story of a photographer trying to preserve evidence of the horrors committed inside a Nazi concentration camp. I’m going to borrow some review commentary because I think they do a better job than I could trying to describe how wonderful of a film this is.

Set in a concentration camp, the film balances Hitchcock-like suspense with stark illustrations that some horrors cannot, and will not, be trivialized.

The Photographer of Mauthausen’s major achievement lies in documenting a period in Spanish history that’s received shorter shrift.

Mar Targarona’s suspenseful, unrelentingly graphic depiction of the horrors of absolute evil juxtaposed with hope, purpose, and compassion is both searing and heartening.
