      make way for life

      This movie is old, I did see it for the first time a year ago, thanks for the 60th anniversary of D-Day.
          I remember that at the commemoration of the liberation of the concentration camp, there was heavy snow with goose feathers, the sky and the earth had merged into a dull gray, and countless great men had merged with the snowflakes all over the sky. They lowered their once proud heads and observed a moment of silence for you. Under such a ceremony, the souls wandering in the barbed...

      His charisma can conquer the universe!

      A black and white film showing a gray world where everyone's heart is gray, whether it's a hopeless Jewish future or a murderous Nazi party!

      Just for moving slowly at work, a Jew's life is instantly wiped out; just for not being screened out in medical exams, and female captives cheer like a holiday; just for not brushing the stains off the bathtub, a Jewish maid People were shot! The countless bright red blood shed by the gray life never awakened the humanity of the Nazi officers....

      black oppression

      Watching this movie again after a few years, it is still a heavy and suffocating sense of oppression.
      In this way, he sat silently in front of the black and white screen for more than three hours, but it was like being squeezed by someone's chest. Apart from witnessing and crying, he couldn't make any sound.

      I've always rejected films that depict war because I can't avoid the killing scenes. I can accept some kind of killing, but when the number of killings exceeds a certain...

      Impressive memory

      I don't always like these War kind films, they are bloody and cruel, and a little chaos. But this one is different from others, it started my thinking of history and human's nature. I watched this film when I was just a junior student,our Chinese teacher recommended it to us.What impressed me most is the little girl in red.She was the only creature with color in this black and white film,she was so attractive and living that her death threw a strong strike to the audience. In addition to this,...

      What left the deepest impression on me was the look in the window of Oscar Schindler, played by Liam Neeson towards the end of the film, as he slowly drove away in the presence of his own factory workers. It was a look of pity. . There were still a little tears in the corners of his eyes, because of the remorse that "I could have done more" he said emotionally before, because of the proof letter and ring signed by all the workers when they parted, and because He knew it might be a goodbye...

      Very good movie, better than the pianist. The story takes Schindler as the main line and tells how he saved the Jews. At first he just wanted to make a fortune from the war, and later hired Jews to save money. Later, the scene of the slaughter of Jews and the little girl in red were too touching. He was hard-hearted and soft-hearted, and he was able to save the family members of the workers. Later, I spent all my money to write a list to save people, and the diamonds at the bottom of the box...

      For World War II films, I don't dare to watch it a second time, it's too heavy and my heart can't stand it. A little bit of red in the black and white picture is so...

      Great human brilliance! When Schindler said, "I can save a few more..." I burst into tears instantly. Some people actually say that this clip is hypocritical, but I was deeply...

      The heaviest movie I've ever...

    Movie plot

    German speculator Schindler ( played by Liam Nissen ) is a member of the Nazi Party. He is feminine, can enjoy, and is a well-known Nazi hardcore in the locality. He is good at using and connecting to get the most profit. In occupied Poland, Jews are the cheapest labor. Therefore, Schindler's factory only uses Jews. However, when these people get this job, they also get temporary security and are protected from slaughter as producers...

    Filming tidbits

    Billy Wilder contributed the original script for the film.
    Martin Scorsese rejected the opportunity to direct the film in the 1980s. He believed that he could not do the job well like a Jewish director. Later, he agreed to use the film in exchange with Steven Spielberg to direct "Cape Terror".
    Spielberg wanted to give up the opportunity to direct to Roman Polanski. Because the theme was too personal, Roman Polanski, who had a childhood...

    Piercing shots

    Coherence: When Schindler kissed a Jewish girl, he put his hands on her face. In the next shot, his hands were dropped from her shoulders.
    Coherence: When Schindler was looking for Isaac at the train station, before he was expelled, Schindler shouted his name at the train and walked away. At the same time, Stern replied, "He is in the train. ,gentlemen!". But in the next shot, Schindler walks to another train, while Stern is inside.

    Creative background

    In order to repay Schindler's life-saving grace, Podeck Pfeifferberg, who survived World War II, decided to spend his life telling the story of Schindler's saving the Jews. In 1963, Pfeifferberg tried to co-produce a biopic about Schindler with MGM, but failed in the end. In 1982, the Australian novelist Thomas Kennelly published the novel "Schindler's Ark" after meeting Pfeifferberg. American Music Company President Sid Schieenberg...

    Evaluation action

    "Schindler's List" has a touching plot and a tragic vibe. The documentary-style shooting method with black and white photography as the main tone gives the film a real effect, touching and thought-provoking. The film language in the film is very well used. When showing the tragic experience of the Jews, there is a shot of red. In the scene of the stormtrooper slaughtering the Jews, the little girl in red forms an extremely strong...

    Movie quotes

    • S.S. Guard: You did this? You stole the chicken?

      Child: [shakes his head]

      S.S. Guard: But you know who did?

      Child: [points at the dead body] Him!

    • Oskar Schindler: Boxed teas are good - coffee, pâté... um, kielbasa sausage, cheeses, beluga caviar. And of course, who could live without German cigarettes? As many as you can find. Some more fresh fruit, the real rarities - oranges, lemons, pineapples. I'll need several boxes of Cuban cigars, the best. And dark unsweetened chocolate, not in the shape of lady fingers - the chunk chocolate, as big as my hand, you sample at wine tastings. I'm going to need lots of cognac, the best, Hennessy. Dom Pérignon champagne... Um, get L'Espadon sardines. And, oh - try to find nylon stockings.

    • Amon Goeth: My place is where?

      S.S. Guard: There, sir.

      Amon Goeth: There?

      S.S. Guard: Yeah, it's a villa.

      Amon Goeth: You call that a villa!

      S.S. Guard: The synagogue, can you see it?

      Amon Goeth: That's not a villa...

      S.S. Guard: We're planning on turning it into the camp stables.

      Amon Goeth: It's a house!
