The Pianist (2002)

A brutally honest film surrounding a great Polish pianist during the invasion of Nazi Germany. Roman Polanski follows the novel very closely. It's not a light film, but it does contain a level of optimism throughout. Adrian Brodey is perfectly cast in the lead role. Attention to detail borders on fanatical. Polanski is the right director to handle such a difficult subject. He went to great lengths to create a real quality piece of art. The Pianist is in an elite category of its own.

Rating: A+

Nice review. I'll have to check this one out. I'm trying to movie binge as much as possible this weekend.
