The book is one of my favourite books ever. But in there, the indifference is the most horrifying mark of the plot, like a twin for Camus' "The Stranger". But the movie, with a different attitude by little György (he visibly cries and suffers; in the book he's the shocking presence of neutrality and emotional emptyness), made me believe in fate. Absolutely beautiful. Lajos Koltai should direct more film! genius!
