In truth, there is barely enough story here to make a film.

I think every musician would love this genre. These movies are a big help improving music history and are the most lovely genre for those who are real lover of historical music not a hot and a commercial music.

A Polish Jewish musician struggles to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto of World War II. The Pianist is a stunning film about the horror that jews faced in World War II. The movie definitely benefits from Adrien Brody's amazing perfomance but also Thomas Kretschmann who really fits quite well the role of the german. The movie also has some shocking scenes like people getting run over by jeeps that the german soldiers are driving but also an entire building on fire with people jumping from it and facing their demise as germans are laughing. This is definitely a well edited, well shot and well directed drama and one of Brody's best works to date. (10/10)

Adrien Brody got the role of his life in The Pianist. It is not difficult to be moved when you see the imminent horrors of you and your family's possible death sentence for reasons you grasp but somehow silently protest to and however lost you are in such situations, you will try to keep your composure and be dignified as a family. As the main character moves in artistic, educated circles, he was able to survive through the help of caring friends and connections. But that is only for a limited period, then rough reality sets in, lack of food, sickness, being locked from the outside of an apartment, bombings, hiding , whatever you might do in order to survive. Thomas Krenschmann is highly credible , definitely he shone in his short albeit crucial role as the high ranking officer who due to his love of music sheltered Adrien during the end days of the second world war . One can't help but agonize with Adrien as he suffers , suffers, suffers and suffers. I was welling in tears as I was so moved until this film ended, only a stone wouldn't.
