The Pianist

man this is a lethal film!

none of that spielberg hollywood subtlety crap that sort of made schindlers list feel more like a "movie" rather than an "experience", which this film was

the key to watching these Holocaust films is that you watch it with a point of view that the Nazis lose, and those that were badder than the usual bunch, got back what they gave and more

the thing which made this film remarkable was Adrien Brody's performance, especially during the 2nd half of the movie when there was hardly ANY dialogue or AUDIBLE dialogue

anyway definitely a film you have to see once!

Yes, it's an amazing film...definitely different from most dealing with the holocaust. It's so beautiful...everyone should see it.

I finally rented it a few weeks ago-absolutely haunting, a masterpiece.

I can't believe Chicago beat it out for best picture-not that I didn't like Chicago, but that was ridiculous. Adrien Brody deserved best actor w/ out a doubt.

Brilliant movie. Adrien Brody was well deserving of winning the Oscar for Best Actor.

The most underrated acting in the movie was done by the actor (sorry, I don't remember his name) who played the Nazi that took care of Szpilman (near the end of the movie). He was so subtle and understated, but conveyed the spirit of a man like that so perfectly.

Such an affecting movie. I saw it twice in two different theaters. The second time I saw it in the second-run, art-house theater downtown and there were a lot of older people there from the Conservative synagogue by my house. There was some audible sobbing and gasping throughout the movie, which was just so sad.

But yes, an amazing film.
