Súlytalanság

Sorstalanság

A film honlapja volt talán az első intő jel - kínosan gagyi, semmitmondó oldal. Aztán jöttek sorra az első nézői visszajelzések - és sokminden beigazolódott, amitől tartani lehetett. Úgy tűnik, hogy a film méltatlan Kertész regényéhez, a Soa filmes elbeszéléséhez.

Erről akár érdemes személyesen is meggyőződni, pl. most szerda este, amikor a zsidó ifjúsági szervezetek (UJS, Kidma, Somer, Bné Akiva) szervezésében a MOM Park mozijában fogják lejátszani a filmet. Koltai Lajos, a rendező is ott lesz.

Is this kmovie coming out in the future? I wonder whether it will be distributed in NA. If they have subtitles, I know a couple of Jewish film festivals here that might be interested in it.

Hi TM,

'Fateless' has just opened in Budapest, the premier was last week at the annual Budapest Film Festival. It also premiered abroad at the Berlinale in Berlin.

However, I was actually saying in this post that unfortunately this isn't a good movie. "Fateless" is an important and excellent novel which everybody should read but the movie is shallow and a badly told story overall. It's also a shame that it was done with a ton of government subsidy (third of the costs came from state funds).

Are you interested in the Jewish film-festival business TM?

Oh, if it's a bad movie...never mind.

I'm not interested in the Jewish Film Festival business because it's not such a great business and in almost all the key markets in the US and Canada, there already exists a Jewish film festival. Most of these festivals are supported through a combination of community foundations or Jewish community centers, wealthy benefactors, and to some degree ticket sales.

Having said that, I enjoy cinema, know a little about it and enjoy film festivals in general. I haven't seen many Hungarian films with Jewish content make their way to these shores.

One Hungarian Jewish film I enjoyed immensely is The Revolt Of Job (don't know original title), directed by Imre Gyongyossy.
