The Pianist The Pianist is a movie that revolves around the theme of survival and the ability of the human spirit to endure It shows both the humans characteristic of evil and good The film directed by Roman Polanski is based on a true life account of a Polish Jew named Wladyslaw Szpilman one of the greatest pianists in the world This film showed a talented pianist who managed to survive the war by luck and the kindness of several people Wladyslaw Szpilman was a famous pianist who played for the Polish radio but when bombs began falling on Warsaw his whole life started to change The Nazis moved into their city and execute women children and elderly people along with Szpilmans family members in numerous senseless killings Szpilman was saved by a friend who took care of him and gave him a place to hide until the Russians made there way into Poland This couple gave him an apartment that no one knew anyone was living there About once a week they would come and see how he was doing and dropped off some food When he was sick they would take care of him and send over a doctor to see him All of these people would be in trouble if they were caught harboring a Jew however they still went ahead with their own principles At this point of time Szpilman had always wanted to play the piano in his room but if the Nazis found out that he was inside the house he would be in trouble Therefore Szpilman had no choice but to play the piano silently in his own mind This kept him enduring through the days during his stay at the apartment Most people would probably think that all the Nazis are evil men who have no feelings for anyone However one person in the movie had completely changed my view After Szpilman escaped
