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.
Steven Spielberg initially intended to make the film in Polish and German with English subtitles, but rethought the idea, because he felt he wouldn't be able to accurately assess performances in unfamiliar languages.
The scene inside the cellar between Oskar and the maid, when she faces the camera head on, there is no light coming from the right, yet as the scene progresses and the shot tightens, somebody turns on a light which becomes visible as they cut to her left and her head tilts forward.
