Holocaust drama about a Hungarian Jewish boy's (Marcell Nagy) coming-of-age experiences in various concentration camps, where, through relationships with fellow prisoners, he struggles to make sense of the atrocities around him and gain deeper insights about himself. Directed by Lajos Koltai from a script by Imre Kertesz based on the latter's semiautobiographical novel, the film, despite its grim subject matter, is visually graceful, and the intimate story conveys universal themes, such as the resiliency of the human spirit and its ability to discern beauty in even the darkest situations. Disturbing Holocaust images, brief partial and full prison camp nudity, and some rough and crude language. Subtitles. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
