Buy it... if you are either an Ennio Morricone enthusiast or are willing to be enveloped by a respectfully restrained Holocaust survival score.

Avoid it... if you prefer the beauty of your Holocaust scores to be expressed with outward emotion and power.

Morricone
Morricone
Fateless: (Ennio Morricone) Based on the 1975 autobiographical novel by Imre Kertesz, and adapted to the screen by the Nobel Prize-winner himself, Fateless is an impressionistic telling of one teenage boy's experiences in Hitler's death camps, and his equally alienating experiences after liberation. It is the directorial debut for cinematographer Lajos Koltai, who applies his keen sense of disturbing beauty into a film that for the most part avoids the representations of evil common to movie perceptions about the Final Solution, instead treating the villains of the story as bystanders to the boy's internal turmoil. Although uplifting in the fact that the boy obviously survives several camps, Fateless is still a largely somber and horrific portrayal of a kid whose soul has been stolen and turns away several opportunities at emotional redemption. Kertesz was ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with veteran composer Ennio Morricone, whose career in Italy since receding from the American spotlight has hardly missed a beat. It has been five years since Morricone's scores for Mission to Mars and Malena earned him popular and awards recognition in America, but the composer, now 76 years old, continues to churn out at least half a dozen scores per year. Writing for films spread across European nations, Morricone's total score count now hovers somewhere near 500, and with six projects slated for completion with his music in 2006, he shows no signs of slowing down. Despite having composed darker chapters for such horrors on screen before, Morricone handles Fateless in a manner that is more consistent with his upbeat positive drama and romance efforts, choosing to provide a counterpoint to the primary character's seemingly lost and uncaring soul. The tactic not only pulls the film out of the depths of irreparable despair, but also translates into one of Morricone's many uplifting, quietly beautiful works.
