Corrected entry: When Szpilman is walking down a sidewalk, he passes two German soldiers. One turns and addresses Szpilman as "Sie". Then he says, "Was machen Sie?" German soldiers never addressed Jews with the polite form of you (Sie), they always used the informal "du". The officer changes to "du" when he tells him to walk in the gutter.
Corrected entry: When Wladek is on the bus, he starts drumming his fingers on the barrier between him and some officers. Notice how long and skinny his fingers are. However, whenever he starts playing the piano, his fingers are short and stubby. It is obviously someone else playing.
Corrected entry: In reference to the scene where the Nazis on the balcony dump the old man from his wheelchair onto the street, they didn't drop the old man WITH the chair - just the old man. Two scenes later, the old man is shown dead on the street ON TOP of the wheelchair.
Corrected entry: There is a scene where an old man in a wheelchair is thrown out of a window and the rest of his family is forced to run away in the street, only to be gunned down by the German soldiers. In the last shot, the German soldiers are driving away, and you can see one of the people who is suppose do be lying dead on the street slightly move out of the way of the car (to avoid being actually run over).
