Both good tilms?
I'd look to watch both Deb.
The Pianist is from 2002. Staring Adrien Brody, directed by Roman Polansky.
Setting is Warsaw, Poland between the years 1939 and 1945. The film is based on the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jewish radio station pianist.
For me, it was gripping.
The Platform. 2019
I had it on my list, and was looking forward to watching. Then I heard an interview on the radio with the director, Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia so moved it up since it seemed to have developed overnight popularity.
Without giving any spoiler alerts, the premise is:
A vertical prison with one cell per level. Two people per cell. Only one food platform and two minutes per day for each cell to feed from up to down.
I kept getting interrupted while watching, so it took me 3 days to view it all. Since that was my experience, I can't say if that was a good or bad thing. Subjectively, it gave me a chance to consider what I had seen in that days time. I don't know if my total experience would have been different if I watched it straight through.
I will say that it's more complex than the basic description of the film above.
