László Nemes later directed the acclaimed feature film Sauli poeg (2015) applying the same approach he first used in Türelem (2007).
Selected for over 70 international film festivals.
Consists of one sequence shot (10 min. 23 sec. without credits).
There is no dialogue, except a few words and mostly inaudible background noise.
There is a crying old woman, dressed in black, who is forced by other prisoners, probably 'Sonderkommando', to stay where she is. This moment looks very similar to a historical picture from the 'Auschwitz Album' collection and is probably inspired by it. The original picture can be seen for example in the documentary Scrapbooks from Hell: The Auschwitz Albums (2008).
Begins with a quote from T.S. Eliot's famous poem "The Waste Land" (1922): "I could not / Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither / Living nor dead, and I knew nothing, / Looking into the heart of light, the silence. / Öd' und leer das Meer."
Dedication at the end: "To the unredeemable loss of the Freilich family".
Only one piece of source music can be heard during the film: "Absent" (1912) performed by Elizabeth Spencer and Charles W. Harrison. The music is used again over the end credits.
