Michael Haneke's challenging adaptation of Elfriede Jelinek''s novel won honors for Best Actress (Isabelle Huppert), Best Actor (Benoit Magimel) and the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival. Huppert portrays a single, middle-aged piano teacher whose lonely, unhappy existence includes voyeuristic activities and self-mutilation. Pursued by a talented musician (Magimel), she enters into a disturbing relationship of violent, masochistic sexuality. "...watching Huppert, a great actress tearing into a landmark role, is riveting" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). In French with English Michael Haneke---France/Austria---2001---130 mins.
