A phenomenal film that I somehow have failed to see over the years. Polanksi's personal experience from this time period make this a very powerful and truthful experience without an ounce of schmaltz. I think the structure of the film is spot on - the first half shows the general misery and unbelievable cruelty that was taking place and the second half focuses on the title character's struggle to survive. The transformation of Brody from a sharply-suited young man to a shambling wreck clutching a can of aubergines is something that lingers in the mind.

Amazing film (harrowing, obviously). It would have been better in Polish, though. Felt distinctly "not right" for them to be speaking in English, and we have these wonderful things called subtitles!

I had to be in the mood to finally watch this movie. I knew it would be rough on the emotions because of the depiction of the actual cruelties that the Jewish people suffered. But when I finally saw it, I was amazed even more by Brody's amazing transformation from a clean-cut professional to a broken, frail fragment of his former self. Heartbreaking...

Some of the most impressive lighting, sets and locations that I can remember. Probably the single best leading performance of the decade and the directing is flawless. Polanski is exceptional, what a career!

I was depressed for 2 days after watching this film; it is essential for every cinephile to watch this because it is a beautiful heartbreaking piece of art. One of those films that will make you feel thankful for the mere fact of being alive.

One of the BEST pictures I've ever seen, I still can't get the VWS where Brody is standing in the middle of all the wreckage out of my head, that was a beautiful beautiful shot!

Beautiful and heartfelt. Brody's quiet charm really comes out. This movie is just as much a masterpiece as Schindler's List.

Now I completely understand why this girl once said she always watches this movie when she feels depressed.

I can't say I really enjoyed the first third, but once he was left on his own, the story really picked up.

How did this movie not get nominated for the music? And also...How can anyone dislike this movie? It's flawless!
