Unsettling and provocative, "The Piano Teacher" is at once a study of the lives of deeply unhappy people and a commentary on the dangers of repression. It's not pretty or pleasant, but one can expect nothing less from controversial Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. He shines an unyielding light on his character's perversions, prejudices, and desires.

I have just discovered that I have actually seen all the movies directed by Michael Haneke. Right now, after winning back-to-back twice the prestigious Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival, the guy is pretty much at the top of his game and he is definitely one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays. It is also interesting that he has made half of his movies in France and this featu... read more

“(MU) Pervertion is the other side of perfectionism here. Big freaky surprises hide in schools -a conservatory here- where tutoring 'virtuosism' is the goal. Isabelle is right for that, mom Annie Girardot knows it.” read more

"20.10. HBO Kivuliasta ja koettelevaa. Michael Hanekelle tyypilliset kylmät ja pitkät otot tietenkin tukevat tätä. Varsinainen neronleimaus katsoa aamupäivällä nollat taulussa."

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2020 (149 movies items)

"14.5. 2020 A sadistic piano teacher meets a smart young man and starts teaching him. The piano teacher is frustrated because she is controlled by her tyrannical mother and she tries to compensate her pain by trying to control the young man. The director Haneke masterfully avoids typical cliches when he examines problematic human relationships and he diversely explores all the inducements related to disturbed behavior. It's especially impressive how the film shows perfectionist worldview slowly "
