It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. I remember it quite well when this movie was released, it was critically acclaimed and even managed to win the prestigious Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival. Anyway, I thought it was a rather unique movie with a mesmerizing mood. Indeed, the story was just fascinating, something I had never se... read more

Pretentious, with stunning cinematography. Great for arguments.

Hunter truly shows that acting isn't just words...

This film really inspired me because obviously it is quite a disturbing film but it is really a beautiful film to that people can look at in different ways. I think the main inspiration for me of this film was that Ada used her piano to express herself and to show her beautiful colours but after she loves it so much, it sort of takes over her life.

It is the mid-nineteenth century. Ada is a mute who has a young daughter, Flora. In an arranged marriage she leaves her native Scotland accompanied by her daughter and her beloved piano. Life in the rugged forests of New Zealand's South Island is not all she may have imagined and nor is her relationship with her new husband Stewart. She suffers torment and loss when Stewart sells her piano to a neighbour, George. Ada learns from George that she may earn back her piano by giving him piano lessons, but only with certain other conditions attached.

"Sept 17th Absolutely beautifully shot. Great colour palette and camera movement / framing. Worth watching for this alone. The main story is also told with subtlety and care. Harvey Keitel and Holly Hunter are excellent in the lead roles, having a great dynamic between them. It pulls the viewer one way and then flips in another direction with wonderful craft. The score perfectly matches the great cinematography. Some of the frames and compositions are among the most memorable that I have seen"

"It's not the prequel to "The Pianist" and Anna Paquin is the only one who doesn't get naked and there are no vampires."
