The Pianist

A Polish-Jewish musician struggles to survive the II World War in Warsaw. The screenplay is based on an autobiographical book "The Pianist: The Extraordinary True Story of One Man's Survival in Warsaw, 1939-1945" by Władysław Szpilman. Roman Polański shooted this film in Poland (mostly in Warsaw) and in Germany. A wonderful story how music and passion can help to survive in horrible times. And a sad picture of the Polish capital after the Nazi-German occupation.
Szpilman was a radio station pianist and composer before the war. Forced into the ghetto, he managed to survive its destruction and find a save place among the ruins of Warsaw.  A ghetto survivor is also Roman Polański himself. Being a child he has been saved by a rural family close to Cracow in the south of Poland. Both Szpilman and Polański managed to survive the Holocaust.
