The Pianist (2002)

This is an absolutely wonderful movie. The scenes are deep and emotional, Adrien Brody is a great actor, and the movie has great music.

While it doesn't pack quite the same punch as Schindler's List (1993), it's still a must-watch movie. One difference between the two is that Szpilman's story is more passive where as Schindler's story is more active. It turns out, the passive story, one of survival by luck and fate, is the type of story Polanski (the director) wanted to get across. As such, the movie carries a lot of emotional weight.
