Movie Meme Day 4

A Movie That Makes You Sad

The Pianist definitely fits that category. I have always been fascinated by World War II. I'm amazed by the way people mistreat each other. Here was an entire war based on the hatred that a few people in positions of power managed to heap on the heads of entire countries. It's a complete travesty, and I'm stunned that it managed to happen. In this movie, on top of all the horrible things he watches happening around him, he then ends up completely alone. He's hiding, afraid of death at every turn, and starving to death. At one point, he finds food, but it's in a can and there is no can opener. The desperation as he tries to figure out how to get the can open takes my breath away. The whole movie makes me very sad.
