The Pianist (2002)
The true story of pianist Władysław Szpilman's experiences in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation. When the Jews of the city find themselves forced into a ghetto, Szpilman finds work playing in a café; and when his family is deported in 1942, he stays behind, works for a while as a laborer, and eventually goes into hiding in the ruins of the war-torn city.
This movie is simply excellent.It shows the pain,the horror,the feeling of insecurity that comes along with war in a haunting way.
Man, I can not get this film out of my head. It is so rare that a movie can affect me the way "The Pianst" did. The last movie that did that was "Casino". I was really tired when I was watching the movie. It was almost midnight, so I was thinking that I'll start watching and I'll finish it in the morning. Did I? No, indeed I did not stop watching. I couldn't stop it. I just wanted to see what would happen next. I cried during "Schindler's List", I sobbed in this film. Everything that happens in this film is so sad. Adrien Brody does a remarkable job of acting in this film. I would very highly recommend this film. Especially if you are a history buff. Please, I think this film should be in the top 10 best films of all time.
it can be hard to steel one's nerves for a film about a subject as heavy as the holocaust, but i urge you to do so. this is an incredibly moving film and adrien brody richly deserved his unexpected win for best actor. it's a tear jerker and very powerful. i can't believe the horrors and atrocities that man is capable of. i hope that we can learn to be better to one another, but that doesn't seem likely
The movie is spectacular and you can imagine the hard world to Judes people in this time. You can imagine the difficulties to them. You mustsee this movie! In my TOP, I have any doubt abut this. The pianist can transmite th++his feelings with his sad eyes and with his very but very sad music playing in piano. The atmosphere in this time was so terrible and it possible for us to imagine are in them own places. Very similar like Schindler list. I love this movie. Very good!
