The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin movie film black comedy by Armando Iannocci
The Death of Stalin
Some people were sad and showed it, some others – were happy and hid it. March 5th, 1953, very late evening, small village close to Moscow. Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili was announced  dead. Few hours later the news is spread by radios around the world. And in the Soviet capital begins a frantic power struggle. Who will win it? How it will happen? And for what price? This you can watch in a black comedy by Armando Iannucci.
Who was Joseph Stalin, the most frightening Soviet leader? His son Vasily says in the movie: “My father was a great social scientist, but we the people of the Soviet Union are not laboratory animals”. 

A big part of the history shown in a Monthy Pythonesque way.

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.
