Film Comment - 11/01/2002
"...A monument to the indestructibility of the human spirit..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/27/2002
"...THE PIANIST achieves the monumental without abandoning the modesty of its origins....Polanski's strange genius serves Szpilman's remembrance..."
New York Times - 12/27/2002

USA Today - 12/18/2002
"...[Polanski] brings history to life....It stays with you..."
Premiere - 02/01/2003

Entertainment Weekly - 01/10/2003
"...[A film] of riveting power and sadness, a great match of film and filmmaker -- and star, too..."
Rolling Stone - 02/06/2003
"...A portrait of hell so shattering it's impossible to shake..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2003
"...A work of sustained tension and ferocious clarity, and as near-perfect a marriage of subject and artist as could be imagined..."
Total Film - 10/01/2010
