Like Schindler's list
29 November 2006 | by pkolasaSee all my reviews

As explosive as Schindler's list. Some scenes even more graphic. If the movie was made by any American, it would also win an Oscar.

Unfortunately it's in Polish. But some copies are with English subtitles. Something not for children, for sure.

The concentration camps were mostly located in Poland, so the Poles know all about it too well. Schindler's list contained few things that were washed up or not exactly as it was, although very close.

Interesting, that during his stay in Poland, Spielberg lived in small cheap hotel, that is maybe 200 m from my house! :) I got upset, because I was in Canada at this time. Doh!
