5.0 out of 5 stars A moving story......, 2 Mar 2004
This review is from: Schindler's List (Special Edition) [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
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.
