György Köves, a 14 year old Jewish boy who lives in Budapest, is the son of a merchant who is sent to a forced labor camp.

His journey is a trial of faith, a test of character, and a fight for survival.

What are critics saying?


The New York Times by Dana Stevens

It represents something stranger and, to those of us with only a secondhand or thirdhand knowledge of that history, more disturbing: a survivor's conviction that there were aspects of the experience itself that can only be described as beautiful.


Variety by Eddie Cockrell

Exquisitely modulated and superbly mounted, the directing debut of skilled cinematographer Lajos Koltai went through an extended, unpredictable production history to emerge as a genuinely new way of looking at the Holocaust that is markedly different in tone from other such stories including "Schindler's List" and "The Pianist."


Village Voice by J. Hoberman

Fateless has a remarkable absence of sentimentality. The movie is obviously artistic, but there are no cheap or superfluous effects. It's almost mystically translucent.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

This exceptional film features some of the most beautiful cinematography ever seen on film, in service of some of the most horrible images imaginable.


Entertainment Weekly by Lisa Schwarzbaum

In the juxtaposition of cataclysmic matter-of-fact misery and cinematic poetry, the filmmaker finds a calmly stunning way to convey the experience of living with death as something intimate, and, unnervingly, almost natural.
