6 Something about the Pianist The director of the film “The Pianist” is Roman Polański. This film is a biography of Władysław Szpilman, who is a musician and a Jew. The author of the film soundtrack is George Kilar, photographs for the film were taken by Paweł Edelman. The role of the main character is masterfully played by a young, less than thirty years old actor, Adrien Brody. The film has made a huge impression on me. This is a very realistic composition showing the life on occupied Poland, in the difficult years of It captures the atmosphere of those times very well. The fact that in the films some incidends from the director’s life are used, similar to those of Szpilman, greatly contributed to the success of the movie. The films not easy in the reception.
7 It requires from the audience a great attention and concentration It requires from the audience a great attention and concentration. It is by no means a lightweight composition. It raises a very difficult issue of the Holocaust, shows the dramatic fate of the Jewish population. It shows the cruel actions of German soldiers – humiliation of prisoners, their abuse and finally the mass extermination of Jews in death camps. The film is maintained in an extraordinary atmosphere intensified by a good music. In the background of the terrible events of Warld War II the romantic sounds of Chopin’s works can be heard. It contains a huge emotional charge and brings the audience extreme feelings of great terror, pity, sorrow. I think that nobody will remain indifferent to the film adaptation of the history of Władysław Szpilman and I strongly recommend watching it.
