Christopher Small. That was certainly the case at a recent press conference with journalists at the Locarno Film Festival , where the actor is receiving a lifetime achievement award. In preparing for the film, he added, much of his time was spent on a starvation diet. I was very disturbed by what I embraced [in making that film], and of the awareness that it opened up in me. But how much these things take from you changes project to project. Just a few minutes before, he had been responding to a question about whether he regretted his infamous impromptu kiss with Halle Berry onstage at the Academy Awards. But another reason for his endurance in the minds of the mainstream moviegoers is the rich combination of wit and gravity he brings to every role, no matter how seemingly disposable.

Hoping for a quick victory, Szpilman rejoices with his family at home when learning that Britain and France have declared war on Germany. But the promised aid does not come.

To achieve the mindset of a man who lost his home, his family, and life as he knew it, Brody stripped himself of the connections and comforts he had.
Robert Downey Jr. Sign in. Szpilman's book was adapted for the movie in a script by Ronald Harwood. Edit Coming Soon. Technically there are no songs in The Pianist, because songs have lyrics.
