In German-occupied Poland during World War II, Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazi Germans.
The film finally netted Steven Spielberg the Oscar for Best Director, something that had eluded him in the past.
When Schindler takes his meal he uses his fork with the right hand and his knife with the left. Not being left-handed this would be a very unusual thing for a German man to do. In fact, Germans and many Europeans do in fact cut their meat with their dominant hand, and do not rotate utensils. Rather the meat is eaten straight from the knife, so the way Schindler eats in that scene is technically culturally correct.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
