697 words - 3 pages

The PianistThe Pianist is a movie that revolves around the theme of survival and the ability of the human spirit to endure. It shows both the human's characteristic of evil and good. The film, directed by Roman Polanski, is based on a true life account of a Polish Jew named Wladyslaw Szpilman, one of the greatest pianists in the world.This film showed a talented pianist who managed to survive the war by luck and the kindness of several people. Wladyslaw Szpilman was a famous pianist who played for the Polish radio, but when bombs began falling on Warsaw, his whole life started to change. The Nazis moved into their city and execute women, children, and elderly people along with Szpilman's family members in numerous senseless killings.Szpilman was saved by a friend who took care of him and gave him a place to hide until the Russians made there way into Poland.

When he was sick they would take care of him and send over a doctor to see him.

However, one person in the movie had completely changed my view. After Szpilman escaped from the apartment in Warsaw, he managed...
