The Piano Teacher

Michael Haneke's sexy shocker rocked 'em at Cannes this year, walking away with Best Actor, Best Actress and Grand Jury awards. The film is an unflinching look at a self-destructive, middle-aged piano teacher (Isabelle Huppert) who engages in a series of voyeuristic encounters (peep shows, porn cinemas, city parks) in the seedier sections of Vienna. Haneke's films (Funny Games, for example) rarely take it easy on viewers, and this grim look at sexual repression is no exception to the rule. In French with English subtitles. 130 minutes
