Film: Schindler’s List

Opened: December 15, 1993

Directed by: Steven Spielberg

Starring: Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes, Caroline Goodall, Jonathan Sagal & Embeth Davidtz

Possibly the best portrayal of life during the Holocaust, director Steven Spielberg brings the story of a man who saved over a thousand lives to light.

During World War II, German businessman Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson) provided jobs to more than a thousand Polish-Jewish refugees saving them from the horrors that were being undertaken by SS officers, such as Amon Göth (Ralph Fiennes).

Spielberg depicts the story of Jewish people in the Holocaust in its gruesome reality. A later scene showing Jews arriving at Auschwitz will make you shiver as you witness the horrors they went through. At the same time, you observe the cold-blooded acts of the Nazis.

There are no frills here. The movie will probably make you uncomfortable, as it should. It’s a reminder of dark times that should never be repeated.

Final say: A masterpiece. ★★★★★
