A young Jewish boy (a devastating debut from Petr Kotlár) is subjected to the darkest depths of humanity in Václav Marhoul’s stunning adaptation of Jerzy Kosinski’s infamous Holocaust novel. Set during the depths of the Second World War, we follow the boy wandering Eastern Europe in search of solitude, only to find a world warped by the physical and psychological effects of war. Shot over a number of years, this dark odyssey is a harrowing but essential descent into the human psyche in a world where there is little hope left.

Warning: contains strong violence, sexual violence and disturbing scenes.
