The Pianist 
The Pianist review
3.5/4 stars

Władysław Szpilman (Adrien Brody), a famous Polish Jewish pianist working for Warsaw Radio, sees the whole world disintegrate with the Invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939. When the German Army enters Warsaw, living conditions for the Jewish population has worsened, with daily massacres. Szpilman is saved at the last moment by one of the Jewish Ghetto Police, who happens to be a family friend. Wladyslaw asks Majorek a favor to escape and plans of fighting back. The Gestapo discovers the weapons.

This biographical war film has excellent screenplay with professional artists. Brody’s portrayal of Szpilman was astonishing. Its realistic directing, authentic set locations, score was applicable to each particular frame. Some of the quotes include: Majorek – “It’s how to survive in the other side that’s hard.” Władysław - “Food is more important than time.” The movie really shows the harrowing effects of war such as not having any clean water, electricity and food while avoiding genocide. An only concern this reviewer has is the lack of subtitles for the German dialogues with the main protagonist. The Pianist is beautifully created drama that exemplifies how one man can survive in such a difficult ordeal.
