Not going to talk about the pros of the film. It is obvious. I will write only my opinion on the comments like "Spielmann-a weak man, he didn't save my family, don't have a thing... Yeah and just why exactly Spielmann?!"

As not harsh as it sounds, but like did You its place? Would go with family certain death, knowing that though you and you will be together, but nothing to each other not will help it's very much not will be. Or still be seized for a chance, small, tiny, tiny chance to survive... I would it grabbed. Szpilman did the same. And the last thing here one can see is weakness. People, instead. to accept her fate, left her calling itself that really does not aware. How can be called a weak man, passing through all the torments of hell, and came out Alive a Man in the full sense of the phrase. After all of the experience he has survived more 88 years, engaged in the work and gave it people. By his example, he showed that your own life is valuable have us that the preservation of this value is the meaning of our existence here.

Here so Spielmann, because the film is about great altruistic, gregarious marching in a mass grave with a proudly raised head, could have ended up too fast predictable... And make movies have a Life, even in time of war, let the side-by-side with death, hardship and difficulties with the selection, but about Life. It gives me hope.

The Holocaust is revealed in the movie is not once, and when I started to your computer the file "The_Pianist.avi" I expect another story in the spirit -"what bastards the Nazis, which the poor Jews." In principle it happened, but film, contrast the creators of the genre was the most realistic and grounded, rigorous and multi-faceted.


Pianist should be used as textbook for the creation of a movie. In the film is laid: the fate of man, empathy, tears, depth, atmosphere and such things that are best described using a simple Russian word — tin. If you run through the most significant paintings of the foregoing concepts: human life — certainly one of the best movies in film history and top my humble opinion, the role of Tom Hanks "Forrest Gump" mega-annealing of the Pope of the trilogy, "Ago future" Robert Zemeckis. Empathy — many of the characters mind. You can remember Bruce Wheelis in Film Armageddon, Mike "right now, all explode" Bay. Leo in the well-known disaster that occurred on 14 April, 1912. Tears — here it is worth Recalling the main lesbijanka of all times and peoples of the Titanic my favorite Director James Cameron or the tragedy of a drug addict Jared Leto in film Darren Aronofsky "Requiem for a dream."

The depth and atmosphere — then, as said — "the taste and color of comrades not," do everyone has their own favorite film that people can watch 100 time and more then 100 times he doesn't get bored. Personally me this film "the Green mile" Frank Darabont "Jacket" John Maybury.

Well, finally the tin. The hardest picture for me is the TV series Saw that have fifth year shows the audience the contents of human heads/bellies/lungs and did not hesitate, directly in the frame breaks a bone, squeezes his eyes and drowns in pig guts defenseless Americans.

Pianist — history shows that my favorite fool Forrest Gump nervously Smoking in aside when the Nazi officer recharges the gun to kill the last of a lying Jew, he (the Jew) empathize with as has not wanted to not Leo Dee not Bruce Wilis, not the Ashton the Kutcher, which is too early turned away from Amy Smart in the final the Butterfly Effect. Tin. Here, take all "Saw", add to it all "destination", lined with all sides the adventures of Fred Kruger and Jason multiply all this parade of delinquency on 30. All still it does not match with the stage of ejection an elderly Jew with a disability from Windows Pianist.

The textbook of life.

After watching the Pianist, you begin to appreciate what had not noticed. As well that we all can go where you want to go to bed without fear not to Wake up to that we can, in the end, eat when you want. All sorts of disaffected pessimists moan on every step that say — live badly, no money, no jobs, education is expensive and etc. They want to move in the jaw, using the shock to sit for viewing the Pianist and say — "That's bad live!"


Pianist NEED to see absolutely everything, and fans of Tarantino and fans Star Wars, and Gopnik, which headed from Afterburner and cut a La VIN Diesel and like I — that spit from modern blockbusters and all prove that earlier films were better. The most important thing in film — not the number of millions spent on special effects, and the semantic web.

The film is impossible to evaluate what sort of digits. This is a masterpiece.

Another story about how bad Jews lived in the time of the Second world war. Surpass "Schindler's List" is not was one reason — there are also classical music. Strange but only this music and draws out the film, gives it more dramatic, certainly pity the poor bearded Brody.

Why so much noise in his time around the movie? It is because Palansky? Filmed "the Pianist" of course is very good, and the scenery is beautiful and the story is sad, but still not that. The name one the creators of him so much honour? Hardly. And may so, what's the difference? Movie to watch you can! That need more?

Definitely not the best job Palansky, but close.
