Schindler’s List -Message for today’s society from a Classic Movie!


Schindler’s List is one of those war/epic films that goes into your head and leaves a long lasting impact through its direction, storytelling and strong acting. It also has a good topic and seeing from a point of view that the film released in, it is a worth watch.

Liam Neeson has always been one of my favourite actors and he was also the very first actor that I started watching and began to take interest in Hollywood movies. The very first film that I saw of him was Unknown and it made me curious to see all of his works and I am glad I have.

In the last few years his films have been more of the Action/thriller genre but when you watch Schindler’s List – you will get to know that he has worked on a very different role.

Talking about the guy who bagged an Academy award nomination for best actor in supporting role -Ben Kingsley, He just nailed the role perfectly.

Liam Neeson is always a good choice for any kind of role whether he is to play a villain or spy.

Schindler’s List is a story set around the reign of Hitler when he massacred thousands of Jews in Poland. The last scene in the film where Oskar realizes the worth of one human life really makes us emotional and is one of those powerful scenes in cinema history that can not be compared ever.

Oskar Schindler was one of the businessmen in Poland who was just a business man making relationships with big German officers and totally unaware of the pain the Jews were going through.

As the film progresses, we see a big transformation in his character as he starts to develop feelings for his labours and saves them finally.

The film is a must watch for all kinds of people and of course, it is a war film so be prepared for some violence and brutal scenes.

Steven Spielberg’s direction is always mesmerizing along with the music of the film. A benchmark in filmmaking.

The film talks and ends on a very serious message for the society – that nothing , NOTHING is more precious than a human life. A life is a gift.

It clearly speaks to us that when you save a life , you save the entire world and humanity.
