The Pianist

Post placeholder image

I along with a dozen other folks were at the 7pm showing of The Pianist at Pipers Alley. The Pianist chronicles the life of Polish-Jewish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman from 1939-45. He died in Warsaw in 2000 at age 88 after surviving the Holocaust through an extraordinary series of incidents and coincidences. Movie was adapted from his 1946 memoir Death of A City. I don’t have much more to say about this movie. Simply that it’s yet another brilliantly acted and directed movie about the Holocaust and I’m emotionally exhausted by it all.
