English title: The Piano Teacher.
The Austrian-born Michael Haneke, who primarily works in French, is one of Europe's most consistently provocative and unsettling directors. Even though "Amour" found a larger audiences and seemed to show a thawing of his infamous chilly style, it was basically a horror film about aging. Unlike the more predictably controversial Lars Von Trier, Haneke's films are always controlled and quiet on the surface, while he remains a distant, yet cold-blooded presence. "The Piano Teacher" feels like a typical tale of a passionate, intense love story between an older piano teacher (an imperious Isabelle Huppert) and a young, cocky piano player, but it's far more disturbing, exploring sexual desire with a rare boldness and precision. Like many of his films, it's compelling and incisive, but I don't know if I'd want to watch it again. Haneke would work with Huppert again on "Time of the Wolf" and "Amour." Also see "Romance."
