Roman Polanski's THE PIANIST is based on the memoirs of the talented pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman (Adrian Brody), a Polish Jew, who miraculously survived World War II. The first half of the film transports viewers to 1939 Poland, and brings it to life clearly and believably. Szpilman is a tall, handsome, winsome man who is revered for his piano performances on public radio. He lives with his family--an intelligent, loving, and spirited bunch--in an upscale flat in central Warsaw. Bombings have beg... [Get complete synopsis]

You KNOW I am just about incapable of giving a bad review to a movie about the holocaust...

(except for Swing Kids, that was terrible!)

Excellent movie. Mitch now calles my dog Shpillman...and the dog actually responds to it. Here Shpilman, who wants a cookie? Good Boy!

I also call him 'Belosh' and he responds to that too. I can't wait to see what crazy names your so-to-be-born child will respond to!

So Mitch,

Now I have to go walk Belosh

Deril, you should tell the story of inviting Adrien Brody for Passover...

It's hard to write the story...easier to say it verbally, but here it goes.
First off, this movie is Anat's mother's FAVORITE. As depressing as it is, she's seen it 20-30 times AT LEAST. She LOVES adrien Brody.

Anat's sister Sally was at a club downtown Montreal and actually met Brody. She phoned home to tell her mom, and the first thing her mom says (in a thick Spanish accent) is

"Did you invite him for Passover??!!"

(please note that this happened about a month BEFORE Passover. I guess she just wanted to have adequate prep time.

Sally replied "WTF??""

"sorry mom, my first reaction was NOT to invite him for Passover"

Anat's mother was very upset that the offer wasn't made and it still comes up from time to time....true story!
