Product Description

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.

20th Anniversary Edition Includes:

  • Second disc with 1 hour of special features: Voices from the List, The Shoah Foundation Story with Steven Spielberg
  • 16-page collector's booklet

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
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.

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.

Important note - this review is of the boxed set contents for this limited edition release of Schindler's List and not for the film itself, which is an absolutely essential buy.
The boxed set really adds nothing to the standard release of Schindler's List on DVD, which is beautifully packaged and has some interesting extras. On top of this standard release you also get:
Soundtrack of the CD - John Williams' excellent score is strong enough to be listened to aside from the film but can be found separately and doesn't justify the additional cost.
A book containing stills from the movie - whilst the book is beautifully produced and the stills are evocative, the question has to be - what is the point? The images within the book mean far more as part of the movie itself. A more sensible approach would surely have been to produce a book containing real documentary evidence of the Holocaust.
A "limited edition" stenotype of a scene from the film - one of Universal's favourite extras in their limited edition DVD releases. Everybody gets the same film still, and the number on the back of mine was 188843, which suggests the limited edition isn't particularly limited. This sort of thing only has any value if it is genuinely scarce.
A "certificate of authenticity" - somewhat tackily containing a quote from Roger Ebert about the film, moderate quality printing on thin paper. Very cheap indeed.
It's a shame that a film as important as Schindler's List receives the same treatment from Universal's marketing department as usual and this boxed set is definitely not worth the extra money that you'll pay over the price of the standard release which, ironically, does show genuine effort having been made to match the product to the quality of the film within.

A perfect edition for a perfect motion picture: I expected no less afterwaiting for such a long time for "Schindler's List" to be released. Sincethe film itself needs no further comments, I would just like to say a fewwords about the DVD editions.
The Limited Edition Box contains about75% air - the size of the box is apparently meant to justify its price, asthe contents itself is no larger than the DVD box itself. The bookcontains mostly stills from the movie, the soundtrack comes in anunimpressive cardboard sleeve, and the "senitype" is - don't be fooled -of course NOT an actual piece of film (it just looks like it). So, youhave to decide whether you want to go with the standard edition or pay thebalance and get the Limited Edition with its "limited" added value.
