Natural and realistic in all categories: acting, story, the opinionless-tone... Realism is typical Haneke and he does it flawless. Even though the subject of sexual frustration, obsession and pain turning into pleasure is not your daily encountering, this movie played it of as normal as can be which makes this a stunning piece of art. Haneke has the power of letting every viewer walk away after the movie with all different kind of feelings and for me that's a very powerful trait in the world of movie-making. He gives us the task of being more alert or things will go unseen. The stabbing-scene came and ended in a blink of an eye and the expression of Hupert in that very moment left me stunned and breathless. A true masterpiece

Erika Kohut is a pianist, teaching music. Schubert and Schumann are her forte, but she's not quite at concert level. She's approaching middle age, living with her mother who is domineering then submissive; Erika is a victim then combative. With her students she is severe. She visits a sex shop to watch DVDs; she walks a drive-in theater to stare at couples having sex. Walter is a self-assured student with some musical talent; he auditions for her class and is forthright in his attraction to her. She responds coldly then demands he let her lead. Next she changes the game with a letter, inviting him into her fantasies. How will he respond; how does sex have power over our other faculties?
