Dir. Lajos Koltai (2005).
Adapted, with a remarkable absence of sentimentality, from Nobel laureate Imre Kertészs autobiographical novel of an Auschwitz boyhood, this Hungarian feature has been compared to Schindlers List and The Pianist; while no single scene is as harrowing as the strongest moments in either of those, Fateless is more sustained than either, the least narrative and the most existential of Holocaust reconstructions.
