I'm physically upset
I knew Roman Polanski's talent but was not prepared to this descent to Hell, described in painstaking detail. I'm physically upset after watching this film. The sense of disgust is real. How awful. How awful.

I could not help identifying myself with the Jewish Poles in Varsovia. I couldn't help thinking that the paralytic old man thrown down the window could be my grandfather. Couldn't help thinking that the kid savagely pulled through the wall could be my brother. Couldn't help thinking that the girl asking the SS-guard the wrong question and being killed just for that, could be myself.

The film describes beastly destruction of any dignity, and yet the struggle for surviving despite everything, even if rationally you realise that, perhaps, it would be even better to end it all at once. It describes the dishonesty of people profiting of this situation to make business out of your misery. It describes your need of believing the words of men NOT of their word, if they promise you life. And affection and courage surviving despite all this.

This film could make a good pair with "der Untergang" with Bruno Ganz, which is also such a masterpiece that you may risk feeling sympathetic with the Nazi. Have you had this temptation? Watch "The Pianist".

The best war movie ever,Best movie on Holocaust..Heartbreaking and Shocking..
Roman Polanski is one of best directors ever to exist,the atmosphere he creates in his movies is so deep and influential. 'Rosemary's Baby', 'Repulsion', 'The Tenant' and 'Chinatown' are all movies which have a great sense of mystery and dark addiction about them but when you mention 'The Pianist', it is his masterpiece.

Roman Polanski rejected offer to direct 'Schindler's List'.Though it was a great movie as well,but after 'Pianist' we came to know what he was really thinking.The tale of Wladyslaw Szpilman is told in a flowing and natural way that creates an atmosphere no other War movie can.The story moves like a storm and there isn't a frame you can skip.You cry, you feel pain and you start to feel as a part of miseries of people trapped in Warsaw Ghetto.No other movie has been able to portray the Holocaust better than 'The Pianist'.Even people who want to know what Holocaust was, should watch this mesmerizing experience.

Any review of this movie is incomplete without mentioning Adrian Brody.The worries, the hideouts, the hunger and the misery of Szpilman is naturally depicted to you by his powerful performance which earned him a deserved Oscar.The scenes when he is dragging A Can of food around the place he is hiding really brought me shivers to the feelings of a prisoner of war though I have my own experience of GULF WAR in 1990 to relate it with when I was just 10 years old.

The realistic atmosphere of the movie is not to be missed by anyone.'The Pianist' is one of the best movies ever made and the best war movie ever and to consider that it is based on a true story of survival, makes it much more Powerful movie.

An astonishing film
The Pianist is the true story of Wladyslaw Szpilman, at the time Poland's most acclaimed pianist whose life is transformed during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw beginning in 1939. The film spans several years and maps his many personal trials in addition to providing the perspectives of his family, rebel factions and sympathizers.

Brilliantly directed by Roman Polanski and starring an amazing Adrien Brody, The Pianist is bound to garner comparisons to Schindler's List, for obvious reasons. However similar the subject matter, the approach is different. While Schindler's List was filmed in a beautiful, crisp black and white that offered many incredible images, The Pianist was filmed with almost muted color. Schindler's List featured what has been argued as a complicated hero. Oskar Schindler did save many Jews, but not without battling his own materialistic demons first. The Pianist's Szpilman is a sympathetic character throughout. His plight was desperate, and the demons he fought were over his own guilt in surviving a fight that eventually turns into a primal will to live.

Polanski does not spare the viewer any grief with his film. The horrific scenes between the Nazis and the Warsaw Jews were more terrifying and horrible than any horror/suspense movie I have seen in some time, possibly ever. The humiliation and complete loss is wrenching. In several scenes, Jews are lined up in the middle of the night and subjected to either torture or death. In one case, a woman asks of a Nazi officer, "What will happen to us?" and is promptly shot point blank in the head. The camera does not flinch or subdue any of these atrocities.

A mention must be made of Brody's performance. Having only previously seen Brody in two other films, Spike Lee's "Summer of Sam" and Terrence Malick's "The Thin Red Line" (a part that was supposed to be his launch into stardom before his part was unfortunately cut drastically) I knew his potential was great. After his Oscar win, I viewed this movie with more criticism than I normally would have and he certainly did not disappoint. He transcended my expectations. His physical transformation was amazing, but more importantly, he conveyed the sorrow of this man shockingly well - in both verbal and non-verbal contexts. It will be very interesting to see what kind of opportunities this role will afford him, and the kinds of roles he will accept.

Something worth mentioning is the affect this movie had on the audience with whom I viewed this film. Normally, when a film ends, the regular hardcore filmsters like myself will stay and watch the credits in their entirety. The rest of the audience stands up and leaves, usually to the chagrin of the remaining enthusiasts. This was one of the few times I have seen a film at a theater where not one person stood to leave during the final credits. It wasn't until the house lights came up at the end did people begin to disperse. Personally, I hightailed it out of the theater the second the lights came on because not only was my face a mess from crying during the film (Tammy Faye comes to mind) but I had this overwhelming need for an emotional release, so when I reached my car I sat and wept for about five minutes. It has been years since I have watched a film that upset me to that extent. Conversely, while discussing this film with my brother, (someone who loves movies as much and has similar tastes as I do) he mentioned that while he thought the movie was excellent, he wasn't as profoundly emotionally effected as I was. After thinking about this for a couple of days, I realized the difference: The music. As a classical music enthusiast and erstwhile musician, the thought of not being able to enjoy, much less play the music you love is a tragic one. Then the emotional outpouring that comes when you return to it - there aren't words to describe how intense that is. Not having the same appreciation for this musical genre, one will be able to sympathize with the physical and emotional tribulations, but perhaps not in the musical sense.

The Pianist was truly an astonishing film. I was riveted from start to finish and so emotionally affected that I couldn't even consider writing a review until a week later. Having said that, I am filing this away with my list of movies which include Schindlers List and Philadelphia, as films that I love but cannot rewatch for a long time after due to their intensely emotional content.

What did this pianist really do besides save himself??
I'm not going to say that this isn't a well made movie. The acting and directing are all well done. The film moved me emotionally, but then just about any film good or bad that shows German atrocities during the holocaust can pretty much do that.

My problem is this...

With thousands of interesting stories from Holocaust survivors, why was THIS story chosen to be made into a movie?? I really don't see what this man really did other then exercise self-preservation, as anyone else would have done in a similiar situation. He doesn't fight the germans like some Jews did (with the exception of hiding a few guns) he doesn't save any Jews like Oscar Schindler did, he is never even sent to a concentration camp. Quite frankly, despite the fact that he was in hiding, he actually had it pretty smooth compared to most Jews in Europe during that time. In fact he had it easier than most German, Russian, French, British or American soldiers did.

Again, this movie is well made, but I just don't see why it is being praised like it is. I didn't learn anything new about the holocaust or see ANYTHING that I haven't already seen done just as well in other holocaust movies. In fact I can name 5 other holocaust films off the top of my head that are based on true stories that are about more than just self-preservation.

It's a noble movie but there are much better films on this subject.

Wonderful and Terrible. SPOILER WARNING
Roman Polanski's new movie, "The Pianist" is a truly gripping, devastating, heart-felt, unsentimental piece of work. I urge you, if you have not seen it already, to do so before you read anything more about it (including this review). You need to come to the film cold, as it were, knowing as little as possible in advance, so that its effect will be as powerful as possible. This is what I did. I sat in the cinema, chatting quietly during the ads and trailers, preparing myself mentally for what I expected to be a reasonably harrowing but ultimately uplifting experience. The film began. My initial reaction upon seeing Maureen Lipman and Frank Finlay was a slight smirk and a minor panic: Oh God, brit thesps over-doing it. Nothing is more horrifying than the sight of Brit thesps over-doing it. Or so I thought. Because shortly after this panic there was more to concern me. Firstly, the Brit thesps were not over-doing it at all. They were instead giving subtle, measured, moving performances. How bizarre. Secondly, about ten minutes into the film, a gang of nazis stroll into an apartment and casually drop a man from his wheelchair out over the balcony and onto the street below. This is all shown from the point of view of our heroes in the apartment opposite. It all takes place in one long, agonising, heart-stopping take. The entire cinema gasps in horror. All of a sudden we realise just how grim and unflinching this film is going to be. From then on, things get worse (if that is at all possible) with horror piled upon horror in the most matter-of-fact way. Bodies lie in the street. Citizens of the ghetto bicker with each other over scraps of food, spill the food and then lick it up off the floor in desperation. Nazi thugs (as opposed to all the nazi non-thugs...) force Jews to dance, shoot them in the head whenever they feel like it, drive over their dead bodies, etc. etc. Then, as The Pianist's family is locked into the train carriage never to be seen again (the door slamming shut on their screams) he is alone in this insane world, suddenly forced to survive. He is not a good or bad person. He is certainly not a hero. If anything he is rather selfish and introverted. Which only makes this film more realistic and moving. We find ourselves imagining what it would be like to be in his situation. What would we do? There is no point mourning the loss of loved ones. That won't help anyone. Nor is there any point fighting. The Warsaw uprising begins (the fight scenes here are startlingly believable) and then ends in a rout by the nazis. The Pianist watches from his hiding place several storeys above the city. He is a detached observer rather than a participant. He is, perhaps, even a coward, running away from, rather than confronting the enemy. While working on the building gang he does get involved in helping the resistance, but escapes before the fighting begins. All the time we think: what would I do? We would probably do the same: Hide, run, survive. Defiantly avoiding sentimentality at all points, Polanski is in full command of his material here. Adrien Brody as our "hero" is superb. His transformation from elegant, attractive man about town to shivering, starving, desperate wreck is an amazing performance. Towards the end, as he hangs on to his tin of what? Some sort of fruit? with pathetic determination, he is a terrible vision of a man reduced to almost nothing. But still there is the spark in his eyes, and of course, as luck would have it, there is a piano. Which is what saves him. And there is a coat, which almost gets him killed. "Why the fucking coat?" "Because I'm cold." Note, by the way, that the line is not, "Because I'm f***ing cold" which would have been a nice gag, but fake. "Because I'm cold" is achingly sad and small and true. Like I said, Polanski and his screen-writer (the inestimable Ronald Harwood) are in full command of their material. There is not a single false move, not a single mistake. The film is beautiful and cold and terrible and sad and genuinely great. Unlike that other holocaust movie to which it will no doubt be compared, "Schindler's List", this is not at Oscar-Machine, but a moving and honest portrayal of human cruelty and desperation. It is also, in case you haven't worked it out already, a masterpiece.

Classic
Thanks to Roman Polanski for such a great movie. There are certain films where words not enough to describe how great they are. Certainly this one is one of those. The Pianist is one of the moving films I have ever seen recently. One can find almost anything in this movie. Love, death, torture, hope, faith, misery, passion and more. I am not yet sure what my true feelings are for this movie. It is not that kind of film where you can say you enjoyed watching it. But, definitely gives you a kind of shiver that touches the very deep part of your heart. Imagine having a rough journey of four years during the WWII where you experience both emotional and psychological tension.This is the part where the main character, Szpilman, becomes to shine. His true love of music is the only passion that keeps him alive. I admired him greatly. Such a hero with a profound human spirit. 10 out of 10.

Amazing
One of the best pictures I have ever seen in my life. Despite the sadness in the story I have seen this piece more times that I can count, because it's so beautiful. Adrien Brody here was at his best, really making us live the story through him. It's a very quiet movie in my opinion, doesn't have many chaotic moments which I think it's fine cause the real objective is to show the war by his perspective, the guy who has to hide away in order to stay alive. Just perfect.

Superb and very touching
This is a truly heart-wrenching story of one, sensitive man whose family are torn from him (never to be seen again, perished in the Holocaust) and about his survival over solitude, deprivation, starvation and terror whilst in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw. In my opinion it is one of the finest depictions of the holocaust (of which there are many all-consuming portrayals of only a fraction of the stories which occurred). Brody puts in a marvellous and utterly touching performance as Szpilman. The story is abound with terribly moving vignettes which depict the emotional and cultural breakdown of Warsaw's persecuted Jewish community as Nazi policy tightens around them; the overall inability of the community to stand-up to the systematic destruction of their neighbours; the acceptance to wear the Star of David armband (the scene where his father is hit by Nazis and forced to walk in the gutter rather than on the pavement); the arrogant survivalist attitudes of the Jewish Sonderkomando-police force; the young Jewish boy profiteering from petty food-stocks in the ghetto holding area; and then the opportunists, like Szalas, who manipulate Jewish fugitives in hiding outside of the ghetto.

The relationship between Szpilman and Hosenfeld may seem to come into the story far later than expected – about three quarters of the way through – but it is nevertheless the right moment, arriving at the most vulnerable time for both characters – and Polanski creates nothing short of a masterful 'forbidden fruit' by way of coupling the pair, united in their passion for the piano, but whereby the discovery of their friendship would spell immediate death. Superb. It is both touching and a reality check when Hosenfeld offers Szpilman his great-coat, adding afterwards that he has another, warmer one for himself in a slight, yet perhaps ashamed, departure from his humane self and a return to his Nazi persona. The dark humour which later follows up this parting-scene – (Russian soldier: "What's with the f*****g coat", Szpilman : "I'm cold") – was a welcome piece of comic relief however bleak the subtext. The film's ending is with both deep sadness for the lives lost and destruction wrought, and, with a staunch optimism for the future.

In my opinion "The Pianist" is one of the greatest Holocaust films made. The horrors are not forced upon us in the face, but they are presented using the eyes of one man, hidden away from it, seeing it only as an escapee and we get an understanding of its emotional scale to a far greater extent as we are forced to think and hide with him.

10 out of 10
The Pianist is an account of the true life experience of a Polish pianist during WW2, in the context of the deportation of the Jewish community to the Ghetto of Warsaw, a setting virtually absent from all films inspired on WW2.

Polanski (himself a child survivor of the Krakow and Warsaw ghettos) could have described in more detail the legendary, desperate fighting of the Jewish resistance in the ghetto of Warsaw, or the horrific mass extermination in concentration camps. Instead, the film gains in intensity by displaying the war from the pianist's own point of view (through windows, half-opened doors, holes in the walls - with big emphasis on the use of "point of view shooting" by the cameraman). One cannot help feeling disturbed by the most enthralling scenes of the film, as the isolated pianist tries to ensure his survival in the ghetto and ruins of Warsaw, hiding and fleeing, moving from one bombed house to the next, gradually becoming a shadow of his former self, hungry and afraid (merit largely attributed to the extraordinary performance by Adrien Brody, who visibly loses half of his weight throughout the film).

Does the pianist raise any sympathy from the audience? Not immediately, in my view. The pianist is more than often a drifting character, almost a witness of other people's and his own horrors. He seems to float and drift along the film like a lost feather, with people quickly appearing and disappearing from his life, some helping generously, others taking advantage of his quiet despair, always maintaining an almost blank, dispassionate demeanour. One may even wonder why we should care in the least about this character. But we do care. That is, I believe, the secret to this film's poetry.

In one of the strongest scenes, towards the end, a German officer forces the pianist to play for his life, in an episode that suddenly brings a much lighter, beautifully poetic shade to the film (this German officer will be probably compared to Schindler, although his philanthropy does not quite share the same basis).

This is also a wonderful tribute to Polish artists, through Chopin's music, with the concert at the very end of the film and the opening performance by the pianist at the local radio station (with the sound of bomb explosions in the background) forming an harmonious link between the beginning and end of the film (following Polanski's usual story-frame).

Overall, The Pianist is one of the most detailed and shocking accounts of the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis, with the atmosphere in Warsaw well captured and believable. Quite possibly, The Pianist will remain in the history of film-making as the most touching and realistic portraits of the holocaust ever made.

Polanski's film deserves a strong presence in the 2003 Oscar nominations, including a nomination for Adrien Brody's amazing performance, Polanski's sublime direction, best adapted screenplay and, obviously, best picture. This could be, at last, Polanski's long awaited, triumphal comeback to the high and mighty Hollywood.
