A cinematic masterpiece that has become one of the most honoured films of all time (seven Academy Awards among them), the film presents the indelible true story of the enigmatic Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party, womaniser, and war profiteer who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust. It is the triumph of one man who made a difference, and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did.

Please note: the film is spread over two discs.

Spielberg had originally been drawn to the story of Schindler in 1982 when the book "Schindler's Ark" was first published. To his credit Spielberg wanted to wait until he had matured as a director before he tackled the most sensitive of genres-the Holocaust film.
The outcome 11 years later would more than justify his decision to wait as Schindler's List manages to tread a compassionate line between art and reverence to the difficult subject matter.
The film is masterfully shot in black and white so instantly places the viewer in the past. However the excellent photography also aids how we see the parallel lives of Jews and the ruling Nazis. In one sequence Spielberg cuts deftly between a Jewish family forced out of their comfortable home to be housed with many others in the ghetto, and Schindler being shown around a palatial apartment by an S.S. officer stolen from Jews. The black and white film instantly highlights the squalor and splendor in equal measure.
Spielberg is equally aided by his triumvirate of actors; Neeson, Kingsley and Fiennes. Each of them totally inhabit their roles without ever hinting at a performance. Neeson as Schindler is the conduit between the other two and has never been better. His transformation from war profiteer to one of the righteous is gradual and largely unexplained; and for that reason all the more human.
Schindler's dealings with Kingsley's Jewish accountant and Fiennes' S.S. commendant illustrate the ever increasing insanity of the Reich and the diminishing power of their slaves to at first resist and then to survive. Fiennes complains that his villa is really a house, whereas Kingsley is nearly sent to the gas chambers for forgetting his papers, and then sent to work for Fiennes to keep his corrupt financial matters in order.
The haunting images of Schindler's List are many and often. Films are said to be about moments and they are constant throughout Spielberg's film, even with its 3 hour plus running time. The match cut from candle to train, the piles of personal items being collated whilst their former owners are being sent to their death, the muzzle flahes of guns lighting up the windows of the ghetto like piano keys as we hear Mozart played by one S.S. soldier as his comrades exterminate any survivors of the earlier clearing.
A copy of Schindler's List was sent to every school so that future generations would never forget what happened. Perhaps every home should own a copy too.

I write this review more in protest than for any other reason. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but for someone to call this film 'terrible' is beyond me. You feel for every character that is suffering in one way or another from the Nazis. The film is an emotional trial but well worth watching time and time again to remind us of what can happen when racism rears its ugly head. Liam Neeson is totally believable as is the fantastic Ben Kingsley. I cannot imagine how anyone can fail to be moved by the whole experience. The film is an absolute masterpiece of our time and deservedly recognised at the Oscars.

 Very Powerful!

I think Spielberg portrayed the holocaust in a very realistic and upsetting way. The acting was great and the story, while sad, was worth making a film about. It is a very disturbing film but I think it needs to be shown. I think that it is worth buying, but you should be warned about how upsetting it can be.

 One word Brilliant!!!!

This film is a truly remarkable piece of film making from start to finish with impressive performances throughtout from the likes of Sir Ben Kingsley, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.

However the true stand out performances of this film are the actors and actresses who are not as well-known as the names listed above, those individuals who portrayed the victims of the Holocaust. There the true performers.

Anyone who can seat through this film without at least tears building up in their eyes have missed the point and the story that is being told.

Spielberg you are a true genius of your craft. One of the all time greats in film making. Brilliant film. Ten out of ten.

Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 100 Books Reviewer

also one of my top five all time movies if not top three this 1993 semi-biographical film directed by Steven Spielbergand shot perfectly in black and white, tells the story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman and member of the nazi party who despite his somewhat moral imperfections saved the lives of over one thousand Jewish workers during the Holocaust. It was based on the book Schindler's Ark by Thomas Keneally, and starred Liam Neeson as Oscar Schindler, Ben Kingsley as Schindler's accountant Itzhak Stern,and Ralph Fiennes as the evil ss officer Amon Göth, it and won seven Academy Awards,
including Best Picture, Best Director,Cinematography, and Best Score. but should have won some best actor awards as well Neeson was nominated for best actor but lost out to Tom Hanks in philadelpia,and Fiennes nominated for best suporting actor lost out to Tommy lee Jones in the fugitive ..you decide ?
So touched was i by this film that i have visited Krakow in Poland ,viewed the remains of the film set of the Plaszow camp,toured whats left of Schlinders factory got my photo taken on the stairs and visited the old jewish ghetto , took a heart breaking trip to auschwitz and then watched the movie several other times the story never fails to make me ask just how this could have happened ?The movie is full of emotion yet finds lighter moments admist the hearkbreak and trauma,love and hope amongst the death and dispare in a place in time where been on the list ment the possible difference between life and death Neesons scene near the end is so emotional its cinema at its most powerful.
EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE
