Product Description

Adapted from the novel by Thomas Keneally, Steven Spielberg’s masterful film tells the incredible true story of the courageous Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson).

Initially a member of the Nazi party, the Catholic Schindler risks his career and life, and ultimately goes bankrupt, to employ 1,100 Jews in his crockery factory during the Holocaust. Schindler’s Jewish accountant (Ben Kingsley) serves as his conscience, as Schindler conducts business with an obstinate and cruel Nazi commander (Ralph Fiennes), who viciously kills Jewish prisoners from the balcony of his villa overlooking a prison camp.

Filmed entirely in black-and-white on location in Poland, Schindler’s List does not downplay the faults of its magnanimous and unlikely hero, but relates a story of the triumph of the human spirit in the face of horrific devastation and tragedy.

This newly reissued 20th Anniversary Edition is the first time this film has been available on Blu-ray.

  • Restored high-definition film with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound
  • Second disc (DVD) with 1 hour of special features: Voices from the List, The Shoah Foundation Story with Steven Spielberg
  • Limited edition digibook packaging, incorporating 16 pages of insight into the film

From Amazon.co.uk

As haunting now as it was on its original release, Schindler's List remains an ambitious, emotional and quite brilliant piece of filmmaking, whose impact and importance has not been diluted one jot. Director Steven Spielberg had certainly dabbled in his fair share of serious dramas before Schindler's List, but this always felt like it was something different. An adaptation of Thomas Keneally's book, Schindler's Ark, the narrative centres on Oskar Schindler, played by Liam Neeson, whose actions in World War II saved the lives of many Jewish people from the hands of the Nazis.

Spielberg's film never downplays the horror either, channelling much of it through the character of Ralph Fiennes' brutal, nasty Nazi commander. This was Fiennes' breakthrough performance and it still chills. Rightly so.

Filmed in black and white and on location in Poland, Schindler's List's three hour running time goes quickly, but the feelings it stirs up don't. This new Blu-ray, released to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the film, digs deeper into the story behind the movie too, with some thoughtful, heartbreaking extra material. The main feature itself is exquisitely presented on Blu-ray, and John Williams and Itzhak Perlman's music has never sounded better.

Schindler's List may not be the kind of film to put on every week, but it's an important, very watchable and extremely thought-provoking piece of cinema. 20 years on, its telling of history seems more important than ever. --Jon Foster

Format: DVD
I think this film has faults but its merits are so great that it would be ungenerous to dwell on them. For me, Schindler's outburst of weeping as he leaves his 'factory' to escape from the advancing Russians is a sentimental addition - I wonder if the historical Schindler did that and suspect he did not. The clever device of the little girl in red works well, though - it is so true that the plight of an individual affects most of us far more than the equally terrible plight of nameless thousands - and the very end of the film, when it moves into colour and genuine survivors appear, is most imaginative and very, very moving - a coup de cinema. There is great skill in the way in which the times have been recreated visually, and the atmosphere of the film is about right all the way through. The central performances are very good, particularly that of Ralph Fiennes as Goetz, the appalling camp commandant. As an adjunct to this film there is a very good TV documentary from perhaps 20-25 years ago with archive film of Schindler, Goetz and other key figures and extended contrubutions from Schindler's long-suffering wife, Goetz's mistress and many Schindler 'employees' which, if still available, it's more than worth looking out for. It is a tribute to the integrity of this film that it maintains the spirit and. largely, the letter of what we learn from that documentary.

Format: DVD
Thomas Keneally's bestselling book was made into a movie of awesome power and emotional impact. Oskar Schindler was a Catholic war profiteer during World War II. He initially prospered because he went along with the Nazi regime and did not challenge it. But Schindler ultimately saved the lives of more than 1,000 Polish Jews by giving them jobs in his factory, which turned out crockery for the German army. Schindler lost his wealth, but gained salvation for many lives and the descendants that would spring from those lives.
Like Raging Bull and Rumblefish, this film is shot in black and white which accentuates the impact whenever there is the odd colour scene as in the end with the girl in the red coat after liberation of the prisoners. Despite the movie's considerable length, it is never slow or dull. It is hard to believe that Hollywood, which so often churns out mindless drivel aimed at making money, could produce something so important and powerful as this film.

Much credit is due to the three main actors -- Liam Neeson as Schindler, Ben Kingsley as his Jewish accountant (and, on occasion, Schindler's conscience), and Ralph Fiennes as the frightening Nazi commandant. The film won seven Oscars, but its best accomplishment may be reminding us that we must never forget what happened.

Format: DVD
Even though Steven Spielberg had made some of the most successful -- and profitable -- films in movie history (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, Jaws, the Indiana Jones series), he was always perceived as a master craftsman but never as a "serious" director capable of making a grown-up film. This is an odd perception, considering that in addition to such crowd-pleasers as Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. (along with the plethora of projects he has been involved with as executive producer -- Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and the Back to the Future trilogy), Spielberg had directed such serious fare as 1985's The Color Purple and 1987's Empire of the Sun, which deal with such weighty topics as race and the effect of war on children.
One film, released in late 1993 -- the same year that Jurassic Park set worldwide box office records -- changed that perception forever: Schindler's List.
Based on the true story of Oskar Schindler, a German philanderer, member of the Nazi Party, and war profiteer whose desire to make money from Hitler's European war slowly but irrevocably morphed into a desire to save over a thousand of his Jewish labor force from the Nazis' genocidal "Final Solution," Schindler's List is a powerfully moving film. It not only never flinches from the inhumanity of Hitler's willing executioners -- there are all sorts of terrible things going on in here, including torture, manhunts, mass executions, and random acts of cruelty -- but it also touches on the central belief felt by Spielberg himself that decency and righteousness can triumph over even the most implacable tyranny and hatred.

This is one of those films that I have been waiting for on DVD. In my eyes it is one of, if not the best film by Steven Spielberg. Depicting the story of one Oscar Schindler during WW2, who daringly crashes a German officers/movers evening of pleasure in order to make all the right friends for his business plans. He initially seeks to use the Jewish minority as cheap/non paid labour however this changes. As the war progresses, and Schindler learns what was happening to the Jews, he does all he feels he can do in his power to protect his work force and many others. He is hailed as a hero, however still felt that he did not do enough to help them.
With a great director, great actors and great story this is one of the films that stays with you. The use of black and white (a sometimes unpopular and off putting medium to some viewers) was both brave and genius. It makes a scene, where Schindler see's a little girl in a red coat lost in amongst the chaos of the Nazi war machine, very moving and enduring. This film deserved all the awards and nominations it recieved as in my lowly opinion it is a must own film and essential viewing.
