I couldn't believe there's no thread on this so I thought I'd start one.
What did you think of it?
Vastly superior to Schindler's List.
I thought it started weakly. His family were weakly played by a bunch of so-so British actors. Sort of soap opera-ish. But, once they were shoved on the cattle trucks, the film took off.
I wanted the kindly nazi to fuck his jew ass on that piano
I never miss it on cable. It really is terrific.
Oh, R3, about the handsome Nazi soldier in the end: He was actually an East German athlete before the wall came down. He was an Olympic swimmer. He escaped East Germany by leaving Berlin and travelling south along the barbed wire border and nearly died in that escape.
He can also be seen in a film (the title escapes me), a true story about a German gay cannibal who meets a submissive online who WANTS to be eaten to death, and then kills him, cuts him up and freezes him and eats him all winter long. He killed and ate other men that he found on a European chat room specificially for gay cannibalism (yes, there was a chatroom for that in Europe in the 90s). Eventually, someone turned him into the authorities.
Ah! "Grim Love" was the name of the movie. Seen late night on cable. Absolutely extremely unsettling movie. Movie trailer below.
I have an eternal erection for Adrien Brody, so I love it.
Those Warsaw (?) apartments were so elegant. I loved the graciousness and respectability of the Emilia Fox character.
This is one of my all time favourite movies. Adrian Brody was so good in it, such a pity he has become a bit of a knob. Roman Polanski is obviously a loathsome individual and I would normally avoid his work, but very glad i watched this as it really is one of the best performances by an actor i have ever seen.
The scene when he emerges into the ruined city is imprinted on my mind.
I do too, r7! We should start a chatroom to find others.
