backtrack; La pianiste (2001)

pianiste

Writer Elfriede Jelinek and director Michael Haneke share a penchant for unease and a detached mannerism thinly veiling emotional turmoil. Here we are treated to an unpleasantly fascinating play of control and humiliaton.

With cold curiosity, the movie clinically and cruelly dissects upper class structures of culture, society and gender. In my most psychosexual book.
