The Pianist

I didn't get a chance to see The Pianist in the theaters, but I bought the DVD and after watching it, this movie is highly recommended.

Things that I quickly noticed--the repetition of the woman with the feathered hat asking Adrienne Brody about her husband.  The first time, he was with his brother.  The second time, he was alone.  This is a great way to divide the two main halves of the film:  Brody with his family, and Brody without his family.

Another detail I like very much involves the latter scenes when Brody is hiding among the ruins, is shivering from the cold, and is looking for something to eat.  He finds a can that he tries to open.  This can he places on the piano as he plays while the German officer watches and listens to Brody play.  

The juxtaposition of the can (nourishment) with the piano playing (also nourishment) is a wonderful use of prop to reinforce an idea--of how "life" to Brody includes his art.  This art affects the "good" side of the German officer and adds another level to the movie--That through art, despite our differences, we can find some connection.

Also, there are great interviews of Roman Polanski and how his memory of his own experience were included in the film.

And if you are interested in acting, Brody reveals what he did to prepare for the role.

You will also see Wladyslaw Szpilman, the pianist and author, from which the movie is based.

Buy or rent.  It's worth the money you spend.
