Customer Review

on 19 February 2005
A very moving film based in the time of the Holocaust and on the entrepeuner Oskar Schindler who tried to save as many Jews as he could even though the Nazi's were watching. The film gives a sort of documentary feel as it is in black & white whilst as I have heard real footage was also used in the film from the Holocaust.
"Saving Private Ryan" followed on from this film in 1998 as another one of Steven Spielberg's adaptions on the WWII. But "Schindler's List" is not such a war movie but Speilberg trying to show us how one man can make a difference whilst the Nazi's are all powerful. Liam Neeson as Oskar Schindler was the perfect part for him, giving it all he could and helping to turn this movie into a masterpiece. A very emotional side from him nearer the end showing us how Oskar Schindler may have been a member of the Nazi party but that didn't mean he was one of them. Spielberg as always lets himself streak off through the film adding a touch of his own brilliance and focussing on the little girl in the red dress which was cleverly put into the black & white cinematography.
You will be wondering of course if a movie of such standard as this won any awards, yes it did winning seven academy awards including Best Director and Best Picture. I am sure that it was a mistake for Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley and Ralph Fiennes not to win an award but it does not matter as without them the film would not be what it is. John Williams as always contributes to the film with another one of his unforgettable scores.
As it it says in the film "The List is Life."
