The Piano Teacher starring Isabelle Huppert d. Michael Haneke

Isabell Huppert plays The Piano Teacher in the 2001 film by Michael Haneke

  Just saw the film The Piano Teacher for the first time and was smitten.

The Piano Teacher is a twisted tale of love and obsession. And crazy ass fetish shit.

 Director Michael Haneke most recently directed Amore which I think won the Oscar for best foreign film this year?

There are a lot of shots in The Piano Teacher where you see Huppert's character isolated in the middle of the frame in a static shot. It's a recurring stylistic motif in the film.

  The Piano Teacher is based on the German language novel by Elfriede Jelinek, originally published in 1983. (WIKIPEDIA ENTRY THE PIANO TEACHER THE NOVEL)   The Piano Teacher is available on Netflix streaming.
