The cinematography was scenic and the subject matter was aptly portrayed which ranks Roman Polanski as one of the best in the film-making industry. However, I found the main character of the story weak in such infuriating ways. Adrien Brody is a wonderful actor but his character could have done better given the scope of his [spoiler]network of influence, his skill and expertise as a pianist and as one of the few people fortunate enough to escape the terror of the Nazis[/spoiler]. I can't help but wonder what would have transpired had [spoiler]Henryk been the one that got pulled out of that death train by the Jewish Police officer instead[/spoiler]. Maybe we'd have gotten a more inspirational story.

I can’t believe it’s took me this long to watch this knowing about it for awhile because it’s picture is remarkable, deep, beautiful, emotional, eye opening and much more with a strong performance from brody that i’m not much of a fan off but he did a great job in this and he’s definitely made a place in my good books.

Very sad and depressing film based on a true story... and very eye opening also. Story about a Jewish pianist trying to survive during the autrocities during ww2..... great performance by Adrien Brody. Great directing as done by Roman Polanski..... I’m still thinking about this movie a day later.... some scenes were so sad and hurtful that they have remained in my mind. A must watch.
