How far would you go to save yourself? Italian director Gillo Pontecorvo takes an uncompromising look at the dark side of survival by holding a mirror up to the many faces of inhumanity in the concentration camp drama "Kapo" (1959). When Edith, a Parisian Jewish teenager, is shipped off to Auschwitz, a sympathetic camp doctor gives a new identity and she is reborn as Nichole, a Polish criminal, and sentenced to hard labor. Sent to work as a warden, soon her desperation to survive, newfound power, and emotional numbness compel her to thrive within her ranks turn her a brutish as any Nazi. A compelling tragedy that is essential viewing for the serious art house lover.
