The Pianist 2002
Music was his passion. Survival was his masterpiece.
Plot: A Polish Jewish musician struggles to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto of World War II.
Story: A brilliant pianist, a Polish Jew, witnesses the restrictions Nazis place on Jews in the Polish capital, from restricted access to the building of the Warsaw ghetto. As his family is rounded up to be shipped off to the Nazi labor camps, he escapes deportation and eludes capture by living in the ruins of Warsaw.
Did you know: "Szpilman" is the Polish phonetic spelling of the German word/name "Spielmann", meaning bandsman or minstrel, hence Hosenfeld's remark that it is a "good name for a pianist."
