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? Written by
This movie is an evil vortex sucking everything positive out of life as we know it. It leaves you feeling offended, disturbed and utterly disappointed. I was appalled at how many awards it has actually won. It directly indicates that critics and the public accept and applaud child abuse, sadomasochism, incest, the bludgeoning of women and then raping them, jealousy turning into assault, pornography, slavery & elitism. The slogan of this movie should be: "Love = Rape". The marketing department fell off the bus when they took the motto "Sex Sells" and turned it into "Rape Sells". Don't allow this movie to severely distort your view of what love should be between a man and a woman. How can one trust critics and their ratings on any other movie if filth like this is praised so much!? Real life is already teeming with so much evil, stealing our joy. Upon watching this drivel you are giving evil permission to once again, pilfer what little joy you have left, and slapping you in the face with it. Why would anyone in their right mind want to waste more than 2 hours of their time just to feel bereft of any positivity?
