Three Master Storytellers Join Forces to Tell a Powerful Story About the Resiliency of the Human Spirit


The DVD Debuts on May 9, 2006 From THINKFilm

TORONTO, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Fateless, an unforgettable story based on Nobel Prize winner Imre Kertesz's semi-autobiographical first novel about a child who found the courage to come home, arrives on DVD May 9, 2006 from THINKFilm. The captivating DVD will be available for $29.99 SRP.

Beautifully shot and directed by Academy Award(R) nominated cinematographer Lajos Koltai (Malena), Fateless features an original score by five-time Academy Award(R) nominee Ennio Morricone (The Untouchables, Bugsy) and was nominated for two European Film Awards and the Golden Berlin Bear award at the International Berlin Film Festival in 2005. Fateless features unforgettable performances by international stars Daniel Craig (Munich, Road to Perdition), Andras M. Kecskes (The Seventh Time) and Endre Harkany (Fool's Song). Fateless is being released theatrically in 2006.

Set in 1944, as Hitler's 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 city's 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.

The DVD includes additional bonus features:
- Filmmaker Commentary
- Deleted Scenes
- Trailer Gallery
