    Władysław Szpilman was a Polish pianist and classical composer of Jewish descent. Szpilman is widely known as the central figure in the 2002 Roman Polanski film The Pianist, which was based on Szpilman's autobiographical account of how he survived the German occupation of Warsaw and the Holocaust.

    At 29, Brody became the youngest man to win the Academy Award for Best Actor.

    In order to step into Szpilman's shoes, Brody dove head first into the world of method acting. He knew that he could never fully understand what the real-life Szpilman had experienced, but he had to try his best to get inside his head. The first step? Actually learning how to play the piano so that he could perform the Chopin pieces included in the film. He spent several hours each day practicing because he felt that it was important for him to play those pieces on his own.

    Yes, and it will be 2024 BY THE TIME YOU ANSWER ME!!!!!!!
    I have many attributes. Patience, however, is NOT one of them!
    My partner is cracking up at all of this!
    And I'm telling him to shut up!
    YOU! Of all people! I can't believe you won.
    But it is 5:00 A.M. in Greece, so I guess I'll be tossing and turning!
    Sleep well - you're so mean!!!!!!

    I watched it when it first came out in movie theaters. It was good. I enjoyed Life is Beautiful even more.

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is good as well.

    Funny how Roman Polanski won the oscar for directing that year but couldn't make it to the ceremony because he had sex with a teen at Jack nicholson's house in the late 70's and would be arrested the moment he set foot on US soil.

    I saw it in the theatre when it came out. Certainly a quality film but way too disturbing and intense for me to ever want to see it again. (Same thing with Schindler's List).

    I had seen Adrien Brody in Summer of Sam and did not want to see any more of him because I did not like what went down on the set of Summer of Sam. It was a good movie but I heard he got injured on the set. I heard he went through a lot with The Pianist as well. What, almost 20 years and I'm over my reluctance? Yes.
