They make it so overly sentimental that the viewer is able to distance himself of what he's seeing and takes comfort on the idea that something like that will never happen again. But not Night and Fog. Alain Resnais presents the line between past and present as it really is: thinner than we think.

If you watch Night and Fog, which is highly philosophical and almost subliminal, you may well wonder what the big deal is today.
