I just watched the Pianist. Unbelievable. I've heard it compared to Schindler's List- it's not. I've heard it compared to Saving Private Ryan, it's not. It's an unbelievable mixture of pain, suffering, hope, and strength... powered by a detachment to the realm of the beauty of music.
I wish I could write more eloquent about the setting, the director, but I can't. I'm just dumbfounded that everythign that happened was allowed to happen... and incredibly saddened by the loss that is suddenly apparent.
