The Piano Teacher. An icky foreign film about a gruesome piano teacher (Isabelle Huppert) who self-mutilates and otherwise sexually degrades herself. Why? She’s over 40, lives with her overbearing mother, has a father in an insane asylum, and a deep loathing for love, joy or compassion. When she finds a love (in the form of a young piano student), she does not know how to receive it and thus, she must pervert it.
Why would you want to watch a 2 hour foreign film about such a person, even if it were well acted and adequately directed? Perhaps you too have a deep loathing for love, joy or compassion. You should get that looked at.
