Ronald Harwood was assigned the role of writing the screenplay, largely on the strength of his play "Taking Sides". Roman Polanski saw the play when it was produced in Paris in 2000. As the play is about music and Nazis, he figured Harwood would be a great fit for the project.
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 crawls past the woman who was shot in the back and died kneeling in front of the hospital, before she reached the staircase, she has moved in front of the stairs.
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.
