A subtle, yet disturbing and profoundly moving drama about a Hungarian Jewish boy's life-changing experiences in Nazi concentration camps, and his attempts to reconcile himelf to those experiences once the war is over. Steering clear of sentimental artifice this beautifully-rendered story (directed by the cinematographer of 'Malena') is based on the acclaimed novel by Nobel Laureate and holocaust survivor, Imre Kertesz. English actor Daniel Craig has a small role as a liberating soldier.
