The Piano Teacher

Over 16 131 minutes 2001 7.5

Erika Kohut is a piano teacher at the Vienna Conservatory. She is over forty years old and still lives with her old mom whose influence over Erika is strong. It's only when Erika gets away on her regular visits to porn movies and peep shows that her mum's influence seems to lessen. Her sexuality is a combination of morbid voyeurism and masochistic self-mutilation. Until one day, when one of her students gets obsessed with getting her in bed. Based on the novel The Piano Teacher by Elfriede Jelinek.
