The majority of the piano music was written by Frederic Chopin, who was born in Poland in 1810. Even though an orchestra was playing an accompaniment, the final piece (played during the credits) was written for solo piano.
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 forced to leave his first hiding place after breaking the dishes, he encounters an angry woman is the hallway who asks for an identity card and seems ready to turn him in as a Jew. He is forced to rush past her to escape. But once he's outside the front door he seems relatively calm--she couldn't just chase after him?
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.
