Conclusion: 'Shoah' is mandatory viewing by all. This very important film is the ultimate account of what happened during the holocaust. This film has won many awards over the years and deservedly so. There is nothing else like it.
Conclusion: The material gathered by director Claude Lanzmann in his 566-minute film Shoah is undoubtedly of tremendous importance, but this isn't a film that is easy to recommend. It is very difficult to watch - there is too much real pain in it, too much sorrow.
