The Pianist (2002) Directed by Roman Polanski
Adrien Brody as Wladyslaw Szpilman, Paul Bradley as Yehuda and Daniel Caltagirone as Majorek

Yehuda: You know how many copies we print of our newspaper? Five hundred. You know how many people on average read one copy? Twenty. That makes ten thousand readers. These will start the uprising. Majorek hides them in his underpants and leaves them in toilets.
Wladyslaw: Toilets, huh?
Majorek: As many toilets as I can find. Germans never use Jewish toilets. They’re too clean for them.

  1. Certainly one of the most memorable of the Holocaust films, and in the Oscar race it nearly overtook CHICAGO, though it did score for Adrien Brody and Polanski. It seems to be fashionable to disparage the film in recent years, but I have always stood by it.

  2. I don’t want to know the people who would hate on this wonderful film.
