No dramatic feature has ever come quite this close to the matter-of-fact ugliness of the Nazi crimes.

Pitiless, bleak and despairing -- The Grey Zone refers to a world where everyone is covered with the gray ash of the dead, and it has been like that for so long they do not even notice anymore.
With all its flaws, though, The Grey Zone deserves to be respected, and to be seen.
There are better holocaust dramas than Grey Zone -- "Schindler's List" for one, and due later this year, Roman Polanski's magnificent "The Pianist." But few will disturb you like The Grey Zone -- mostly because it won't try for tears.
Grimly claustrophobic movies can make viewers put up a shield, yet Tim Blake Nelson (who directed O) invests this unusual Holocaust drama with dramatic intensity that in no way cheapens its subject matter.
Gives life and meaning to an event that is little more than a footnote in history books (if that).
