Definitely Haneke's best. An amazing, rawly brilliant movie that MUST be seen.

Anything Haneke makes, terrifies me, to my core!

Isabelle Huppert is fascinating in Michael Haneke's The Piano Teacher (La pianiste), something more intimate than I'm used to with this director, and in the character, I think there's a lot of his cold precision. That said, it's Huppert's show. The title character is a strict, sadistic piano teacher ("Are you rushing or are you dragging?" has nothing on her), stretching the limits of her dark sexual impulses as ugly little acts of control as a reaction to her smothering mother at home. Then a pretty boy virtuoso walks into her life and threatens the delicate (but already tipping) balance she's created for herself. An S&M romance might ensue, unless he rejects her for her need to dominate and be dominated. Psychologically rich, La pianiste is of course also accompanied by some tremendous music, and kudos to the actors for putting the extra work in to make that come alive.

This is probably my favourite Haneke film. As Prongs said, powerful and disturbing.
