Schindler's List, a Steven Spielberg film, is a cinematic masterpiece that has become one of the most honoured films of all time.

Winner of seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, it also won every other major Best Picture award and an exceptional number of additional honours. Among them were seven British Academy Awards, the Best Picture Awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Society of Film Critics, the National Board of Review, the Producers Guild, the Los Angeles Film Critics, the Chicago, Boston and Dallas Film Critics, a Christopher Award, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Golden Globe Awards. Steven Spielberg was further honoured with the Directors Guild of America Award.

The film presents the indelible true story of the enigmatic Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party, womaniser and war profiteer who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust. It is the triumph of one man who made a difference, and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film, which also won Academy Awards for Screenplay, Cinematography, Music, Editing and Art Direction, stars an acclaimed cast headed by Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes, Caroline Goodall, Jonathan Sagalle and Embeth Davidtz. Featuring new digitally enhanced pictures and 5.1 digital sound.

It's wonderful, and everyone should watch it. However having said that, what actually happened to these people was much worse. The photography is fantastic and Ralph Feinnes is thrillingly good. It... Read more

I enjoyed this movie more this time than I did all those years ago. It certainly didn't seem like such a long movie.

Schindler did everything he could to save as many Jews as possible, a very good soul.

A brilliant watch. I would quite happily recommend this film to high school students to study the era and what a unstable cruel person can wield such power over others. Very very tragic we can learn from this.
