    Default Has Anyone Seen The Movie "The Pianist?"

    Have you seen the movie "The Pianast?" It is really interesting....and has a lot of Chopin's work....wow....and the way he plays the piano in the movie...his fingers going up and down...JEEZ!!! It's like "whoooooaaa how can anyone play THAT FAST???"

    I actually didn&#39;t like it that much. It was excellent playing, but I hated the movie. Just like the Red Violin... <_<

    Hmmm...I watched both, "The Red Voilin," and, "The Pianast,"....and I must agree...that the movie,"The Pianast," was fairly boring. Especially of the part where that guy was in hiding...from there it had no point really...it just keep going on and on. It was interesting...but my attention faded after that. <_<

    I didn&#39;t see the Pianist, but I really enjoyed the Red Violin for the music and the story.

    They could have made The Red Violin a lot better. The plot was good, but there were many things I didn&#39;t like. Everyone seems to be a jerk in that movie, even the monk from the monastery, and especially the main modern-day character (the guy from Unbreakable). The guy who was the biggest jerk is Pope. He told the orchestra to stop and they listened to HIM instead of the conductors. That whole scene made me want to puke my guts out. <_< However, the story was good. I thought some parts could have been taken out, though.

    Samuel L. Jackson? I think I&#39;ve liked eveything I&#39;ve ever seen him in.

    I really enjoyed the part in China, but I don&#39;t want to give too much away for those who haven&#39;t seen it&#33;

    I was playing Chopin&#39;s first ballade one day and someone said "Is that from The Pianist?" Well I&#39;ve never seen it so...
    Does he play Chopin&#39;s first ballade in the movie?
    IF I hit a wrong key its becaus i kind of like it that way.

    The piece he plays for the German officer? It's indeed the first Ballade in G minor, but a truncated version.
