Schindlers List - A True Classic
- Schindler's List review by CS
Schindlers List deserves all of the awards and accolades it has been presented with. A brilliantly written script and well acted by everyone in the film. Be warned, this is heavy, thought provoking, tearjerking stuff. Yet it has a very warm human side. Whilst you will wonder at the barbarity of human kind, you will also rejoice at the warmth, kindness and sacrifices that we as humans are also capable of. It must be remembered that whilst this film and almost every other one on the subject deals specifically with the Jewish issue. The holocaust affected everyone. Whether you were Gay, Black, Polish, Gypsy, Disabled, Mentally Ill, or just simply held different religious or political beliefs. Everyone who did not fit into the regime was persecuted, and the Germans were not the only nation to do this!! However that aside, this is one of the most thought provoking films I have recently seen, and whilst tackling a heavy subject matter, it was also very enjoyable. Many people made a lot of money from the war, war is big business for some. Schindler chose to use his profit to save lives at great personal risk, this can only be highly commended. The only disappointment is that this film is spread over two discs, so you will have to order both disc one and two. We watched the first disc, and it finished halfway through, so we then had to wait a couple of weeks for the other disc to arrive. This is not mentioned on this site!!
