Wladyslaw Szpilman: Hello.
Dorota: Oh, I came specially to meet you. I love your playing.
Wladyslaw Szpilman: Who are you?
Dorota: My name is Dorota. I, I'm Jurek's sister... You're bleeding.
When Szpilman is waiting in the concentration camp with his family and his father buys a small piece of caramel, he is shown to divide it with a pocket knife with no problems whatsoever. The most likely result of this would have been that the knife would've been taken away as it would be considered to have been a useful weapon.
Aside from the Universal and Focus Features credits, there are no opening credits. All credits, including the title, appear at the end of the film.
