Watched the DVD. Great movie although rather horrific. As described by IMDB:
A Polish Jewish musician struggles to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto of World War II.
And it's amazing that he did as it's based on a true story. Any film about the holocaust is bound to be emotional and invocative but it tells the story of survival in a unpatronising and realistic way. The fact that he's a pianist isn't that central to the film but acts as a theme to hold the story together. Recommended.
