Outstanding and Outspoken
I won't spoil the movie, but this movie isn't afraid to make a point or get a message across. It hits hard emotionally and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet. I believe that anyone who hasn't seen it should, but it isn't for everyone. The rating is correct, but like I said earlier I won't spoil the movie. This movie is excellent at shocking and getting a point across. It portrays a story and struggle in a way that words cannot say without spoiling the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but I will not say if I cried or not since that might be a spoiler. This is a must-watch, but it isn't for the squeamish or those who are not ready for a tough message. I cannot continue this review without spoiling the movie, so you go out and watch the movie before reading anymore reviews.

Pure awesomeness
A great movie on a powerful, essential subject -- the Holocaust years in Poland -- directed with such artistry and skill that, as we watch, the barriers of the screen seem to melt away. The closing scenes of the movie involve Szpilman's confrontation with a German captain named Wilm Hosenfeld -- Polanski's direction of this scene, his use of pause and nuance, is masterful. Szpilman takes to performing sonatas in thin air, eyes closed, those jittery fingers stroking nothing but air. It's a wonderful moment in a wonderful, ghastly film, and one of the most moving arguments for the redemptive powers of art ever made. Crafted without a whiff of melodrama, this motion picture takes a steady, unflinching look at the plight of Jews in Warsaw. Polanski, who was a Jewish child in Krakow when the Germans arrived in September 1939, presents Szpilman's story with bleak, acid humor and with a ruthless objectivity that encompasses both cynicism and compassion.

VERDICT: "High-Quality Stuff" - This is a rating to a movie I view as very entertaining and well made, and definitely worth paying the full price at a theater to see or own on DVD. It is not perfect, but it is definitely excellent. (Films that are rated 3.5 or 4 stars)

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.

Unbelievably Good!
I finally got to see this film. I thought I would be bored with it, and I am a little disgusted with Polanski as a person. I know, I shouldn't let my personal feelings about actors, directors, or Hollywood in general effect how I view a film, but it does sometimes. That didn't happen here.

Not only is the acting amazing, but the cinematography, the realistic sets, the physical appearance of Brody, the cruelty and disregard by the Nazis--it all made me feel like I was actually there. I was especially impressed with the technique of allowing us to see through the eyes of Szpilman. At times, I felt like I could feel his heartbeat and fear. It was so palpable that my wife couldn't watch the entire film. She had to leave because of the overwhelming emotions she was feeling.

It is so engaging. I highly recommend it.

Polanski's most rewarding masterpiece.
After declining to direct Schindler's List due to personal reasons, Polanski set out direct a WWII survival story of his own. The Pianist lacks the narrative sweep of Schindler's List but has strong acting and personal direction. The film is beautifully crafted and original from other similar motion pictures. It distinguishes itself from Polanski's other masterpieces because it has the heart his films usually do not possess. It's just as haunting as his other movies but the beauty and sickness of humanity are contrasted in a way that not even Polanski has ever successfully done before. By far Adrien Brody's finest performance and probably Polanski's best film.

A pianist going through survival !
You can't believe how much I liked this movie, as a pianist myself, and without having read the about-summary, I expected it to be piano-exclusive kind of movie. I was wrong, but then, I was lucky. It turned out to be a real adaption for Wladyslaw Szpilman's miserable attempt to survive the dense era of the World War 2, and oh boy was it intense ! I felt like I am in Szpilman's shoes ! The movie is long, and detailed, it depicts everything, it makes you feel everything.

And man, the ending, I had goosebumps, it was wonderful, I love how they cut the "Chopin's Ballade No.1" piece, they removed the happy parts, and kept only the relieving-then-intense parts. It is just beautiful. (This is no spoiler by no means)

May you rest in peace Wladyslaw Szpilman, You are a legend, and your life made a great legendary movie !

9/10

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.

To hell and back.
The Pianist is an incredible film in many aspects. Roman Polanski's account of the survival of the pianist, Wladyslaw Szpilman, is a document about how one man can overcome the worst possible situations in a world gone completely mad around him.

The only fault one can find with the adaptation of Mr. Szpilman's story by playwright Ronald Harwood, is the fact that we never get to know the real Wladyslaw Szpilman, the man, as some of the comments made to this forum also have indicated.

There is a very interesting point raised by the the pianist's father who upon reading something in the paper, comments about how the Americans have forgotten them. Well, not only the Americans, but the rest of the world would not raise a finger to do anything for the people that were being imprisoned and made to live in the confined area of Warsaw. The exterminating camps will come later.

What is amazing in the film, is the frankness in which director Polanski portrays the duplicity of some Jews in the ghetto. The fact that Jews were used to control other Jews is mind boggling, but it was a fact, and it's treated here matter of factly. Had this been made by an American director, this aspect would have never surfaced at all. Yet, Mr. Polanski and Mr. Harewood show us that all was not as noble and dignified as some other films have treated this ugly side of war.

Wladyslaw Szpilman, as played by Adrien Brody, is puzzling sometimes, in that we never get to know what's in his mind. He's a man intent in not dying, but he's not a fighter. He accepts the kindness extended to him. He never offers to do anything other than keep on hiding, which is a human instinct. He will never fight side by side with the real heroes of the ghetto uprising. His role is simply to witness the battle from his vantage point in one of the safe houses across the street from where the action takes place.

Adrien Brody is an interesting actor to watch. As the pianist of the story he exudes intelligence. There is a scene where Szpilman, in one of the safe houses he is taken, discovers an upright piano. One can see the music in his head and he can't contain himself in moving his fingers outside the closed instrument playing the glorious music from which he can only imagine what it will sound in his mind.

The supporting cast is excellent. Frank Findlay, a magnificent English actor is the father of the pianist and Maureen Lipman, another veteran of the stage, plays the mother with refined dignity.

In watching this film one can only shudder at the thought of another conflict that is currently brewing in front of our eyes. We wonder if the leaders of the different factions could be made to sit through a showing of The Pianist to make them realize that war is hell.

Good film!
This is the kind of magnificent filmmaking that shows a director not only being as true to the story given to him (that of Painist Szpilman, based on his autobiography) but to his past as well- Roman Polanksi faced similar conditions as a boy in the early 40's, and has found the best line to show, never crossed or mis-stepped, in representing the characters and the period. There aren't any hints of tightened suspense, no clues as to where the film could veer to, it just is. The big difference to be seen between a film like this and Schindler's List is not just in the people and situations (Schindler's List was a film about two people, Schindler and Goeth, in the foreground while the Pianist is a total first person tale), yet also in the filmmaking qualities being here surely European. And while the accents on the Polish-Jewish actors sounds a bit too British, that is quite forgivable considering the scope of the project (thank heavens he didn't put in English speaking Germans).

The Pianist is about young Jewish man who his talent for playing the piano led to an unexpected journey
The Pianist is one of many films about the holocaust that I've seen lately which shows either perspective of Jewish man in Warsaw, Poland struggling to survive WWII during the long years that people in Europe thought were antagonizing. I feel moved by Adrien Brody's main protagonist toward the middle of the film. He desperately in search to stay silent, keep out of sight, and his survival to remain alive. It gives me quite an idea of how things weren't so great for him or for anybody during those dark times. I'm forever grateful even though it burns in my fiery soul. Adrien Brody is one of the best choice for best actor in the Pianist. His mind, body, and soul led him through the German-Nazi turmoil to a new and bright future.
