La pianiste [The Piano Teacher] (2001)
Director - Michael Haneke
Nasty tale about the relationship between a young piano student and his sadomasochist piano teacher. Not one to watch with your mum. Isabelle Huppert gives the sort of performance that if this was an American film would have everyone clapping their hands and talking about golden statuettes. But it’s a European film and as such you expect the acting to up to this standard. As with all of Haneke’s films this should be seen. And then talked about. It's quite icky though.
