Following numerous film festival wins including the jury’s Grand Prix in Cannes, Holocaust drama “Son of Saul” took home best foreign language film at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
The film tells the tale of how a Jewish “Sonderkommando” death camp worker finds a corpse he thinks is his son’s and decides to bury him.
Director Laszlo Nemes was on hand to accept the award at the Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills, reminding the audience that “the Holocaust has become over the years an abstraction. For me, it’s more a face, a human face. Let us not forget this face. Thank you very much.”
Also vying for best foreign language film were “The Brand New Testament,” from Belgium, France and Luxembourg; “The Club,” frrom Chile: “The Fencer,” from Finland, Germany and Estonia and “Mustang,” from France
