our film reviews

  1. First of all, I have seen the Pianist and I did not like it, as well as I didn’t like many others like this.
    I think that these films are quite useless because we see them but immediately after watching them, we fund wars all around the world.
    I think that the horror that Jews suffered during Nazi Germany is a terrible thing but it demonstrates that humans don’t learn from history or maybe they don’t want to because a lot of years after this dreadful event genocides continue to happen.
    As I have always believed said, as long as we are not united and tolerant, as long as we will not care about races, religions and origins, wars will never end.
    I think that producers do not make films about all genocides, but only about the ones which are convenient. Personally, I believe that the events which happened to the Jews in the past are as serious as those that are happening in Palestine due to Israel.
    For example, nobody knows that on January 31st, 1876, the US government passed the strict orders to the last surviving tribes, who survived in the massacre made by the English, to move to other areas granted to them, after seizing all their territories. Those who did not accept this had been massacred with their families, but no one remembers this nowadays.
    Africa and Asia are still undergoing dreadful political facts and terrible social situations but this is judged as good by the European and the American economies.
    It is useless to hide these circumstances to make people calling us good strangers.
    In the recent years even in Europe we are experiencing what Africa and Asia have always suffered: the attacks in Paris or attacks against women in Cologne, for example. People said that Islam and immigrants were the problems. All the medias spoke about them but when the French soldiers and blue helmets have violated the fifteen-year-old girls in Central Africa no one spoke about it.
    On Monday, January 1st , 2016 Matteo Renzi was in Nigeria to express its will to fight terrorism at any price, but we know that Italy is the third largest exporter of weapons in the world. We also know very well that these weapons will unfortunately end up in terrorists’ hands.
    All in all, commemorative films could be seen as a starting point to meditate on past errors not to be repeated again. However, they should focus on different dreadful, even contemporary, events, not mainly or only on the Holocaust.


  2. This film tells the story of a Jew pianist in the midst of the outbreak of World War 2, beginning at the moment in which Warsaw was invaded by the Germans. The film is full of very detailed scenes about the life of the protagonist. While watching you have the feeling to be there to deal with the problems that affect the entire community of Jews residing in Warsaw.
    The film is divided into three parts:
    -The first one talks about life before the outbreak of WW2;
    -The second is about the survival of hunger, the completion of work forced, desperate for food;
    – The last part speaks of escape and survival next sequence out of the wall.
    The scenes of the film are continuously accompanied by background music coming from a piano, this still does concentrate more fully immerse the viewer making the plot of the film.
    Suddenly, the protagonist is likely to die twice creating scene that suggest the end of the wire, but suddenly change.. The first when it is about to be deported to an extermination camp is thankfully saved me, then the other towards the end of web surfing is discovered inside an apartment in the German part of an ‘official’ but instead of killing him, he helps him to survive until Warsaw is not freed.
    This is a very beautiful film full of special and very moving scenes and full of emotions.


  3. The Pianist is an adaptation of concert pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman’s memories about his experience in Nazi-occupied Warsaw. The Pianist is one of the most difficult movies I ever watched because it shows the reality of one of the worst times in the human history. We can’t be able even to imagine all the suffering that was put on people during WW2 which puts all of us in a shocked mood. This film succeed to pass down to all us how much brutality, malice and cruelty they have lived.
    The best scene, in my opinion, was when the SS soldier helped the main character to survive. That demonstrates that not all people are evil. Every time someone somewhere can help us because we are all humans.
    However if one of us take the wrong way and try to convince us to follow him we should think with our brain and take the right way.
    I liked this film because it was so emotional and make the audience reflect on human behaviour.


  4. The Pianist is an account of the true life experience of a Polish pianist during WW2, in the context of the deportation of the Jewish community to the Ghetto of Warsaw, a setting virtually absent from all films inspired on WW2.
    Polanski could have described in more detail the legendary, desperate fighting of the Jewish resistance in the ghetto of Warsaw, or the horrific mass extermination in concentration camps. Instead, the film gains in intensity by displaying the war from the pianist’s own point of view. One cannot help feeling disturbed by the most enthralling scenes of the film, as the isolated pianist tries to ensure his survival in the ghetto and ruins of Warsaw.
    Does the pianist raise any sympathy from the audience? Not immediately, in my view. The pianist is more than often a drifting character. He seems to float and drift along the film, with people quickly appearing and disappearing from his life, some helping generously, others taking advantage of his quiet despair, always maintaining an almost blank.
    I think that film is an important piece of the history of the cinema because it talks directly at the spectator the historical facts in the WW2. It is also important, because it keeps alive in the memory of the viewer the massacres and atrocities that Jews lived during the Nazi regime.


  5. The Pianist is a 2002 film directed by Roman Polanski, based on the autobiographical novel of the same name Władysław Szpilman.
    The film is about the story of a jew pianist, Władysław Szpilman, and his family.
    The film is set in Warsaw in Poland and it relates the persecution of the Jews.
    Władysław Szpilman and his family suffer violence and are increasingly excluded from the society. He and his family has been deported to a concentration camp but Władysław Szpilman is saved by a jew. The period when he stayed there he had to fight to live, he worked for the Nazis in inhumane conditions and he suffered their violence but he finally found the courage and he managed to escape getting help from some of his Polish friends. During the time that he was alone he knew nothing about his family. More than once his cover to escape was at risk but he found the courage to go ahead and he managed to survive in places where a normal person without will power and the will to live would not survive. In the end, despite struggling to survive, he met a Nazi face to face.
    I think it’s a well-made film and that it can make people understand the atrocities of World War II and the suffering of the Jews.
    I recommend it to everyone, especially to the younger generations because a bad time like this MUST NOT be forgotten.
