8.2 / 10 (7957)


Erika, a piano teacher at the Vienna Conservatory, lives with her tyrannical mother in a hermetically sealed world of love-hate and dependency in which there is no room for men. Her sex life consists of voyeurism and masochistic self-injury. Then one of Erika’s pupils decides to seduce his teacher.

MUBI's take

The great Isabelle Huppert is the intensely smoldering center of this gripping tale of lust and obsession, which won Best Actress, Best Actor, and the Grand Prix at Cannes. One of Haneke’s most popular films, and one of the most incisive, disturbing and psychologically rich dramas of this century.
