Suffering of Jews brought home,
This review is from: The Pianist [DVD]  (DVD)
I found myself engrossed by the film 'The Pianist', which, in my mind, thoroughly deserved its 3 Oscars. Watching this film really brought home to me just how much the Jews suffered at the hands of Hitler and his murderous Nazi Party officials. I was particularly aghast at seeing the SS officials throw a wheelchair-bound man over the balcony because he couldn't stand up for them, before callously murdering the rest of his family. When my brother watched it for the first time, I told him of one scene at which he would be completely horrified, and indeed he was. We all know that the Nazi party was evil under Hitler, but The Pianist shows us just how brutal they really were. If you are not of a nervous disposition, I would strongly encourage you to watch The Pianist; it is an absolutely brilliant film.
