And he, too, is carried with the flow into the lobby. Debris

everywhere. Szpilman fights to get to the main door, when

another bomb explodes, filling the air with dust and debris,

obscuring him and everyone else.

INT. WARSAW APARTMENT - DUSK

The Szpilman family in panic: coming and going out of rooms,

packing clothes and belongings into open suitcases and a

trunk in a comfortable, tastefully furnished bourgeois

apartment, the living room lined with books, paintings and

boasting a boudoir grand, silver platters and candlesticks.

The family consist of MOTHER, in a state of great anxiety,

FATHER, REGINA, twenty-six, HALINA, twenty-two, and HENRYK,

twenty-four, the only one not in movement. He sits by the

radio set, ear to the speaker, trying to tune to a station.

No bombs now, just the distant sound of artillery fire.

Father, holding a silver-framed photograph, crosses to

Mother.

FATHER:

What you think, should I take Uncle

Szymon's photograph?

MOTHER:

Take it, don't take it, take what

you like. Can't you see I'm worried

sick?

FATHER:

He'll come home, he'll be all right.

He goes into his room. She can barely control her tears

and hurries into the kitchen just as the front door opens

and Szpilman enters, looks round bemused by the activity.
