Critic Reviews of "The Piano Teacher"Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionNovember 04, 2002
This is a penetrating, deeply disturbing examination of desire and loneliness, of desperation and self-denial.Orlando SentinelSeptember 19, 2002
It is depressing, ruthlessly pained and depraved, the movie equivalent of staring into an open wound.Miami HeraldAugust 30, 2002
A gripping psychological thriller that, while lacking the power of Funny Games, is still the work of a master.Detroit Free PressAugust 16, 2002
It is as unlikely that you have ever seen another movie like The Piano Teacher as it is that you will ever want to see another one.Chicago TribuneJuly 20, 2002
A striking, brilliant film with extraordinary performances -- and Huppert's acting is heartrending.Seattle TimesJune 21, 2002
Is like The Graduate remade by David Lynch; it's no picnic to watch, but you can't look away.Antagony & EcstasyFebruary 10, 2010
[Huppert gives] the single finest performance I have ever seen her give, and therefore almost by default one of the best of the decade.Nick's Flick PicksJuly 28, 2006
A film of Artaudian cruelty, and a boundary-breaker in the cinema's exploration of its own erotic and artisanal id.Oregon HeraldAugust 13, 2004
A revolting and shocking work devoid of redemption and purpose.RTÉ (Ireland)February 13, 2003
If genital mutilation, rape, incest and twisted acts of sexual gratification are your thing, then this is the film for you. Any takers?Reno Gazette-JournalJanuary 30, 2003
It's a harrowing, difficult film that's only for the most adventurous art-house movie fans.Creative LoafingNovember 20, 2002
[Isabelle Huppert] outdoes herself.
