  1. parnian janatimehr's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

  2. Arundhati Roychoudhury's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Portrait of a woman's social and emotional isolation, her self-destructive descent into sexual humiliation; subsequent heartbreak and abandonment. Isabelle Huppert is terrific in embodying desperation, loss and anguish.

  3. sabrina's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    To me, this film introduced the reality of parallels which exist amongst the professional and the private: pre-meditation, self-discipline and maintaining control (that is, until it wasn't). It was also deeply disturbing and terribly depressing. Also a really good example as to why the spectrum of sexualities shouldn't be ostracized.

    A magnificient film with a incredible acting of Isabelle Huppert.

  8. OLIVER-J's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Haneke is such a master. first time seeing this one (!) and it is excellent, although not sure I'd say it's my personal favourite of his. Huppert is fantastic here, no denying that. as with all Haneke films the editing, camera work and sound - all top notch. the ending is pretty much perfect, Haneke easily has some of the best endings ever, can't think of a single film of his that doesn't end strongly.

  9. alessandrofarris001's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    One of the ultimate character studies, and a disquieting immersion in a really disturbed and repressed psyche. Haneke manages to create enormous empathy for an unlikable character without resorting to any melodramatic device, while Isabelle Huppert gives the performance of a lifetime; what she does in this movie is just beyond acting, you can't help but feel sad for her.

  10. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    This movie is a one-of-a-kind! So unique! Michael Haneke crafts truly an emotionally powerful film. Isabelle Huppert gives truly one of the strongest performances in cinema ever. So captivating and so hard to watch at the same time.

  11. Dave Alcantara's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Amazing story! great performances.

  12. NCMBianchi's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Great at being disturbing – yet touching – Haneke's 'La pianiste' deserves every praise it received. The narrative is a bit fragmented, but gives an even stronger sense of alienation to the life of the main character. The topics of pent-up sexuality, violence and psichological instability are excellently conveyed through cause-effect mechanism (their actions) that baffle both the viewers and the characters.

  13. Elena's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

  14. angeldromero's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Words won't ever be enough to explain my love for this film. Wow! Masterpiece.

  15. ghinnet's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    First time in a long, long while that a film succeeds in touching me so sharply. My first Haneke, this is a tale where love and pain fight against each other, and it's – maybe unsurprisingly – a strenuous, contradictory, crude and extremely violent fight for body and mind alike. But The Piano Teacher may also fundamentally be a story about the politics (+policing) of womanhood, social restraints and female self-hate.

  16. LibertyCapz's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Phenomenal performances all around in this masterfully crafted psychological thriller. Absolutely loved it. Will definitely look out for more from Haneke.

  18. vizija's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Close up irréversible. 4+

  19. jewelsofglory's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Lust transforms into repulsion as fantasy turns into reality. I haven't seen self loating performed so accurately on the screen.

  20. Ethan's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    This is one harshly sexual film and Isabelle Huppert gives an intense performance that proves she is one of the greatest actors of all time. Huppert can express more with a blank stare then most can with a ten minute monologue. Haneke crafts a meticulous film that focuses on the repression and lack of human compassion that the films characters have for each other. This is feel bad cinema at its finest.

  21. aurkihnowe's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    My first exposure to Haneke's self-created genre, "emotional horror"....of course there are precedents, but this film is just absolutely BRUTAL psychically....

  22. bartkl's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Edgy to the point where you would start doubting the psychological credibility of it all if it weren't done as brilliantly as it is. I found myself troubled and confused, not sure who to judge anymore, all the while being fed new extremities. I'm impressed Haneke turned this into something deeply interesting, as the subject is easily taken advantage of for cheap entertainment. Also: Huppert was absolutely perfect.
