At the beginning of World War II Oskar Schindler moved to Nazi-occupied Poland to open a factory and employ Jews s cheaply as possible, his goal was to make money at their expense. Only a few years later any fortune he'd made was gone. He'd spent his fortune and had risked his life to save "his Jews". And got the better of the Nazis at the same time.
Schindler's List is easily the finest movie that Steven Spielberg ever made. And he's made some cracking films... but this film based on a true story is both honest and brilliant.
Shindler played superbly by Liam Neeson was a master of bribery and deception. Ben Kingsley is also outstanding as a Jewish accountant who handles Schindler's finances and hires new workers. Whilst RalphFiennes plays a Nazi prison camp commandant named Goeth who is pure evil.
Presented in black and white and filmed on location in many of the real places where the events took place Spielberg offers is a truly astounding retelling of this astonishing story, that is flawlessly acted, written and directed.
