Dont miss this unforgettable story of a child who had the courage to come home.
Set in 1944, as Hitlers Final Solution becomes policy throughout Europe, Fateless is the semi-autobiographical tale of a 14 year-old Jewish boy from Budapest, who finds himself swept up by cataclysmic events beyond his comprehension. A perfectly normal metropolitan teen who has never felt particularly connected to his religion, he is suddenly separated from his family as part of the rushed and random deportation of his citys large Jewish population. Brought to a concentration camp, his existence becomes a surreal adventure in adversity and adaptation, and he is never quite sure if he is the victim of his captors, or of an absurd destiny that metes out salvation and suffering arbitrarily. When he returns home after the liberation, he missed the sense of community he experienced in the camps, feeling alienated from both his Christian neighbors who turned a blind eye to his fate, and the Jewish family friends who avoided deportation and who now want to put the war behind them.

One of the best movies I have seen, I think. And totally NOT like the usual Hollywood fare. The pace is slow, and very real. The acting is sublime. Highly recommended!Published on August 20, 2013 by Fabiano Fabris
Another movie about the Holocaust, and very well done. I tend to forget that Hitler invaded many countries and took the Jewish people from them. This one was Hungary.Published on March 3, 2013 by Leslie
