I could have saved one more person : Oscar Schindler (in the film

This dialogue from Schindler near the end of the movie reflects clearly the deeper soul of a man (an angel in disguise for Jews ) who gave his everything to save the myriad dislocated people in the war hit Nazi lands . This film is plotted in the Polish-German war era and the aftermath for the Jew Community . There is a classic camera work and for

the added effect of the dialogues used in the film , there is greater emphasis on the in-between silence and the faces of main characters (close shots

According to my own opinion , the solution lies in the appreciation of the fact that the priority to religion before the life and growth results in cruel acts and the terms like genocide become everyday words

Power /Authority was depicted in the film in two ways , the good and the bad , both at the high limits . There was a lot of unconcerned and cruel display of authority at the hands of army officers especially Amon Goeth , who did every brutal act with men , women and children . However the protagonist of the film , Oscar Schindler was the real proof of the power combined with humility , dignity , and humor . What Oscar Schindler did (with his interpersonal skill and attractive personality reinforced with the money he...
