The Piano Teacher, not to be confused with The Piano, is one of my favorite films! It is in French starring Isabelle Huppert, Benoit Magimel and Annie Girardot. It is directed by Michael Haneke. Isabelle Huppert and Benoit Magimel won best actors at the Cannes Film Festival 2001.
The movie is based on the book, La Pianiste by Elfriede Jelinek. She won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2004. It is one of my favorite books.
I really reccomend both the movie and the book. My review in a very concise nutshell is that 2 people with issues hooked up. It was not how she thought it would be and he didn’t think he was capable. Not your average boy meets girl movie! Of course there is a lot more to the movie and the book than that!
