While working with the Jews he soon found out the terrible conditions they were living in, and decided to save some of the Jews. In my opinion this film shows the story of the guy, Oscar Schindler, pretty well. It also showed what it was like for the Jews during this time very well. What I liked about this movie was it showed really good character development of Schindler. At the beginning of the movie you could tell he really didn’t care too much about the Jews.

The only thing about the movie I didn’t like was it took a really long time to set up the setting, or until Schindler actually saved anyone. Other than that I enjoyed the film, and would recommend it to
