Jonathan Glazer's screenplay is only loosely based on British author Martin Amis' novel "The Zone of Interest." Amis' provocative book is quite different in many ways, because it tells a fictitious 'love story' plot from three perspectives by using an artificial, even comical language designed to alienate the reader. Amis also uses only fictitious names for his characters, even if the historical Höss family was obviously an inspiration.
