Undoubted Masterpiece.By a customer from Scotland , 14 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Saving Private Ryan and E.T were probably the best films of their genre, but you can't measure the impact of this film against those, and to attempt to compare it to A.I. and Catch Me If You Can is simply just crass (sorry!). This film portrays the heart rendering suffering the Jewish populous of Europe had to suffer at the hands of the Nazis. It shows how they were tortured, maimed, abused and exterminated and leaves us wondering about the futility of it all. We can only be left trying to understand the fear and suffering that must have been felt during that time. Although these horrors can never be recaptured for real on film, this film is the next best thing to us as individuals trying somehow to vainly grasp what must have been felt. Think about it!

Very Powerful - well worth watchingBy garethw832 (18 reviews) , 21 Nov 2013This film is one of the most powerful films we have ever seen. The acting is good and the film, though of course both shocking and sad at times,it serves to remind of the evil of the Nazi regime during the last war. I would recommend it especially to the young who are perhaps not as aware of what went on in the 1940's and what could happen again if we are not careful..
history brought to lifeBy Midwifery (8 reviews) , 15 Nov 2013I absolutely loved this film. It brings history to life in such a dramatic and thought provoking way. I would recommend this film to everyone one hundred per cent.
Really thought provoking and disturbing.By ZeeDorks (1 review) , 15 Oct 2013Shot almost entirely in monochrome, the impact of this film can not be over emphasised. First saw this film at the cinema when originally released in the early 90's and have never forgotten how the entire audience remained silently stunned as the final credits ran. Even watching it over 20 years later at home on a television, I was still lost for words at the end of the film. A true story that can not fail to engage you emotionally. A MUST WATCH film.
Thought provoking, must see movieBy Ash_R21 (18 reviews) , 25 Aug 2013Such an insightful look into the horror of the Holocaust and the situations people had to deal with daily. Liam Neeson is fab as Oskar and you really feel for him as well as the people he saved. An absolute must see movie. After watching this I became so interested in Oskar Schindler's story, I went on to purchase the book.
simply the bestBy a customer , 20 Aug 2013Quite simply the best film of its genre. Harrowing scenes of the holocaust entwined with a story of a compassionate man. Superb performances from Neeson and Kingsley. the final scenes had me sobbing. Spielberg at his best!
