Jonathan Glazer adapted Martin Amis's book and directed The Zone of Interest. It is nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, Best International Feature, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.

UPI's review also praised that sound, which puts gunshots and anguished cries from Auschwitz victims in the background of the soundscape.

The film won BAFTAs for Outstanding British Film of the Year and Outstanding Film not in the English Language. It also won four Cannes awards several film critics societies, including the Los Angeles Film Critics who named it Best Picture of the year.
