The Pianist (DVD, 2003 Widescreen) Adrian Brody
It is 1939 and Warsaw was at peace. One of Eastern Europe's most beautiful and historic capital cities, and suddenly out of nowhere Germany attacks with the ferocity of blitzkrieg. Suddenly the calm and quiet are shattered by warfare, and German troops immediately occupy the city and country. Within a short time, all people of the Jewish faith are herded like cattle into
a portion of Warsaw that is walled up and referred to as the Warsaw Ghetto. Wladyslaw Szpilman, perhaps one
of the world's greatest pianists is forced to live here. Aside from being a great musician, and performing on Polish Radio, he is a Jew. This is the story of his memoirs of the holocaust and unlikely survival. The Jewish population of Poland was all but 100% wiped out. All of his family and friends were ultimately murdered by the Germans. Only by the kindness and help of those few people who risked their lives, was he able to escape death. Near the end of the war, a German officer, who was acting Commandant of Warsaw, was instrumental in protecting Szpilman from capture. After the war, he returned to Polish Radio and went on to perform for more than another fifty years. This is a sad movie; sad because it accurately portrays the cruelty and horror of the brand of warfare practiced by the German Army. This is an excellent adaptation of the memoirs of Wladyslaw Szpilman and is a Roman Polanshi production.Read full review

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!
