Synopsis

In The Breathing Lesson the viewer observes a tour-de-force exercise, consisting of commanding a young girl’s breathing both in rhythm and manner. Obeying to the clapping-of-hands of a woman – the trainer – she is willingly guided to the very limits of physical capacity of the human body.
