Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes (Best Picture)

The Academy Award-winning THE PIANIST, is the latest film from one of the world's true visionary filmmakers, Roman Polanski.  The film is Polanski's most personal statement -- the one he has waited four decades to make and a testament to the belief that the triumph of the human spirit is wedded to the transforming power of art.
