Ratings & Reviews

  1. Charlie Douglas-Hamilton's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    An implosion of the feminine drowning in umbral patriarchy. Power is found in coldness and harshness, but existence at a remove makes the real all the more tantalising. Yet to engage is to lose that agency to another. We narrativise our voyeurism and project insecurities, while dealing with the pain from our determinations. A precise, bold and coldly beautiful rumination that gives full-body chills.

  4. Kasun Surindu's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    This is what Haneke is capable of! Sometimes you gotta love the disturbance.

  5. Sunil Chauhan's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    TPT offers plenty of glimpses into Huppert's character but doesn't become a thorough portrait. I didn't want a neater psychological profile, but it doesn't examine her key relationships hard enough either, her affair with the student only coming into view in the second half. There's something a tad schematic about how this plays out. Still, Haneke delivers an unforgettable climax, and Huppert is magnificent.

  6. Antares Rising's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    7/10. Huppert is chillingly superb.

  7. trisha.das1264's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    boundary-defying, uncomfortable, grotesque. I feel violated, but i reckon that is what Haneke intended to do.

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    Sure, a study of a bourgeoisie that'll talk Schubert but watch porn, but I usually prefer this sort of Freudian potboiler when it's pretending to be trash. That said, the biggest twist is that its kinks are revealed with tenderness and even a chance for hope. Both of which are dashed, leaving the disturbed confusion of love/sex/intimacy gone wrong when it reels from theory to practice. Huppert is enormously moving.

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  17. Eduardo Coelho's rating of the film The Piano Teacher

    A magnificient film with a incredible acting of Isabelle Huppert.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

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

    Amazing story! great performances.

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

    Great at being disturbing ā€“ yet touching ā€“ 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.
