The film "The Pianist" is a cut in stone definition of true prestige dramatic film making. Many others filmmakers have pursued to create films of this magnitude but tend to fall short. Filmmaker Roman Polanski captures hearts, in this soul wrenching look into the world as it was through the cold, harsh reality of humanity during World War II.
Roman Polanski is a visionary who's created a masterpiece stemming from
phenomenal epic writing, as he breathes life into his films. Wladyslaw Szpilman writer of "The Pianist" has paved the way for Polanski to give the world an eye-opening gift in true emotional dramatics that can open our hearts and minds.
This hard hitting film's story line personalizes itself through emotional delivery in every scene. The film's color sequences, sounds, angles, depiction’s, moods, and settings create perspective feelings and emotions that many film makers can only hope to aspire to. This epic view of the holocaust is one of a kind in it's class, speaking of class Polanski gives this brilliant film grace, and passion without unnecessary fabrications thus staying true to elegant film making and Szpilman's writing.
Polanski receives a review of excellence for film development aspects, accurate sensory depth, set construction, design detail, and endless imagination. What was especially astonishing was the way Polanski managed to captivate audiences with a single character (Adrien Brody) "The Pianist", never the less another winning performance on his part. Brody’s character is depicted flawless, a gentle man with passion who’s world is torn from beneath him, leaving him starved, and sheltered in solitaire.
Through this characters trials and tribulations, you'll experience the feelings that the character goes through as you relate personally with the film. Brody’s character shows how a man, no matter how broken his life, can stay strong by not giving up and remembering what makes you true. Brody and his character are impeccable, truly a triumphing casting crew. With Polanski's detailed visions and Brody's exceptional screening, this film duo could prevail all productions on the big screen. Aside the well deserved awards, This films influence and impact makes this prominent film a true inspirational work of courage, perfection and brilliance.
-If emotional drama is what you seek I strongly suggest:
"The Passion of The Christ" Filmed by: Mel Gibson
"A Beautiful Mind"
A Pleasure: Justin R. Stewart
Set in WWII Poland, this story of survival is astounding. We watch as Wladyslaw finds any means necessary to survive the German persecution of the Jews and subsequent slaughter as his family and friends are caught, sent to prison camps or slaughtered in the street. Polanski uses color to show the bleakness of the Jewish plight and Warsaw itself during the Nazi rule.
This memoir is brilliant. The acting is superb and the direction is great. You will be touched by this movie because of the sheer desire of Szpilman to survive and the hope we are given from his life. This is a movie you should own and add to your collection. It is not suitable for children, but definitely suitable for mature adolescents and a good way to get them asking questions about the world's history.
Get it, it is fantastic.
best holocaust movie made
without a doubt triumphs over schindlers list
adrien brody was a star in his role, surviving everyday in the nazi occupied country of poland in warsaw. After experiencing his family being thrown into cattle trains which would eventually lead them to their deaths, Wladyslaw Szpilman was saved by one of the jewish police who had known him prior to the holocaust. The way brody portrayed the angst, fear and greif was amazing
he deserved the award as did Polanski
being jewish this movie really affected me personally so i may be possibly baised
but i would reccommend it to anyone interested in history and the events of world war 2
Wladyslaw Szpilman wasn't a well-known pianist to my world, but, his story touched my heart and the film/music stayed in my mind first time I saw it. This is one of the musician autobiography DVDs I purchased on the eBay. Sometime, I just leave the DVD playing on the background of my computer and listening to the music.
This film is a tribute to Wladyslaw Szpilman's survival, a film to show the talent of a young movie star Adrien Brody, also, a film to display the Jewish's struggle during and after the War (after Shindler's List and many others).
"F. Chopin: Nocturne C sharp" is one of my favorite Chopin pieces, just to own a good recording on Chopin pieces, it's nice to have this DVD too.
A true story of the struggles of survival of Wladyslaw Szpillman, a twenty-something Polish Jew, who was a celebrated concert pianist & composer, playing on the Polish Free Radio at the time of the Nazi's invasion of Warsaw. Excellent directing by Roman Polanskli & acting by Adrien Brody, who played Szpillman. Szpillman lost his enture family to the Nazi death camps. He remained in Warsaw & wrote out what had happpens to him and many others at that time. He married, raised a family & died in 2000 at 88. A wonderful & freightening story of overcoming the greatest obstecles of life & death & surviving to tell about. A story not to be missed!
