''La Pianiste'' (''The Piano Teacher'' in English) is a 2001 erotic drama film directed by Creator/MichaelHaneke, based on the novel ''Die Klavierspielerin'' by Nobel Prize-winner Elfriede Jelinek.

Erika (Isabelle Huppert) is a piano professor at a Vienna music conservatory, living with her [[MyBelovedSmother overbearing bitch of a mother]] (Annie Girardot) whom she both loves and hates, whose father is in a mental institution, and who, despite her conservative exterior, harbors an unparalled repressed masochistic sexual apetite inside her. This combination of factors has rendered her a bit on the irritable side, and she takes this out on her students by subjecting them to ruthless criticism. At a recital one night, Erika meets prospectless engineering student Walter (Benoît Magimel). Though it takes a long time, and despite the fact that by all appearances they cannot stand the sight of one another, the two eventually become romantically involved, behind Erika's mother's back.
