I had my post on the novel by the same name, only few weeks back. It was a pleasent surprise to see the movie being featured in one of the channel.
An adaptation of the novel by Nobel Laureate Imre Kertesz, this movie was released in Hungarian in 2005. From what ever I could see ( I missed the starting) , I would say the director and the cast has done justification to the original.
Another haunting experience of the holocaust terror through the eyes of a 14 yr old boy.
Like every autobiagraphical stories, this movie to gets into narration to take the story forward. I'm not a great fan of this technique.
Directed by Lajos Koltai
Lead actor Marcell Nagy
