The Pianist

Saw The Pianist today, it’s a violently incredible movie, the pieces of composition mix and match together with the plot to achieve a surreal perfection that drilled into my brain. The acting is not acutely superb, I rather suspect it is my impressionable mind<g> since I’ve never seen the situation of Jews in the Holocaust portrayed so vividly before. The understated acting though rather adds to the tenor of the movie than takes anything away from it, the ache to survive in Szpilman (Adrien Brody) will spill over your thin glass screen, and the chords of his silent piano will forever vibrate just behind your ears.

Do yourself a favor and watch this, preferably in a theatre, or on DVD.
