    Pianist Question

    Awsome movie, extremely recomend!

    A question popped up: Who actually played the Piano in the move? Was it Adrian Brody, or someone else?

    Not mr. brody. most tracks by Janusz Olejniczak, with some tracks by the original Wladislaw Szpilman!

    So the shots of the hands playing the piano (for example: the end credits, and the performance for the german officer), were that of both Oljniczak and Szpilman?

    I'm not sure, but I assume the hands belong to Oljniczak, since Szpilman is pretty old and it would be obvious that they didn't belong to Brody.

    I think that knowing how to play might have been a requirement at the auditions so Brody probably plays the piano. HIs playing looks realistic but they swithed it with the actual music. As you can probably figure the music sounds very clear - something that wouldn't happen if the sound was recording during the filming. I could be wrong though.
