Nobel laureate Imre Kertesz adapted his novel for the screen version of the memorable drama about a fourteen year-old boy's experience of war.

Gyorgy Koves is barely past celebrating his Bar Mitzvah when the ominous shadow of the Third Reich closes in on Budapest and Hungary's Jewish population.

Although it shares themes in common with The Pianist and Schindler's List, Fateless renders the experience of the Holocaust in visual and emotional terms that set it startlingly apart.

"More than another Holocaust memoir, Fateless is something special; an unforgettable portrait of grief and hope, loss and transcendence" Rex Reed, New York Observer
