Short Description The Piano teacher:Winner of three top prizes at Cannes, including the Grand Jury Prize, The Piano Teacher is a lucid descent into the most feverish depths of sexual obsession. Isabelle Huppert's Cannes and European Film Award winning performance (called "A brilliant psychological portrait" by Variety) effortlessly illuminate the darkest corners of the human psyche in one of the most courageous characterizations of her celebrated career. Huppert and her co-star (and fellow Cannes honoree) Benoit Magimel transcend mere art-house erotica as they plunge headlong into a whirlpool of twisted desire and rage. Based on Elfriede Jelineks controversial 1983 novel, The Piano Teacher tells the story of Erika (Huppert), a middle-aged classical piano instructor who is trapped between her rigid passion for music and her suffocating home life. After subtly tormenting her students at a Vienna conservatory and battling her domineering mother in an undeclared war at home, Erika seeks solitary release through nightly voyeuristic wanderings and self-inflicted masochistic experiments. Drawn to Erikas unrelenting perfectionism, Walter (Magimel), a vain and handsome young student, tragically mistakes her unraveling sanity for growing ardor. After an unspeakably cruel assault on another conservatory student, Erika and Walters perverse courtship explodes in an encounter The New Yorker declared, "may be the strangest sex scene in the history of movies." Director Michael Haneke (Funny Games, Code Unknown) expertly infused The Piano Teacher with a disturbing, clinical intensity that side-steps both moralism and prurience. A film that charts a savage expedition into the grimmest and most tragic recesses of female sexuality without a trace of sentimentality or salaciousness, The Piano Teacher is "Altogether dazzling!...for those who like films that take big risks and get away with them" Sweet November : Nelson is a man devoted to his advertising career in San Francisco. One day, while taking a driving test at the DMV, he meets Sara. She is very different from the other women in his life. Nelson causes her to miss out on taking the test and later that day she tracks him down. One thing leads to another and Nelson ends up living with her through a November that will change his life forever. Along came polly: Reuben Feffer thinks hes found the love of his life but on his honeymoon he discovers her cheating on him with a scuba instructor. Reuben travels back home to get his life on track. On a night out with best pal, Sandy Lyle, Reuben discovers an old school friend, Polly Prince. Reuben feels a connection straight away, and tries constantly to get her to like him. But its not going to be easy for Reuben, especially when he spends his days calculating risks, and when someone unexpected turns up. Come September: Rock Hudson stars with the ravishing Gina Lollobrigida in a "…racy, romantic romp" (Motion Picture Herald) set on the breathtaking Italian Riviera. Every September, this successful New York businessman (Hudson) visits his Italian villa to relax and to romance his Roman girlfriend (Lollobrigida). But after arriving unannounced one July day, hes in for a huge surprise! During his absence, the luxurious home has become a hotel. Whats more, the current guest list accommodates a gaggle of American girls with persistent boys pining after them. In a desperate attempt to regain control, Hudson manages to lose his privacy, his girlfriend and his mind - until he comes up with a plan of his own. This is the film in which Bobby Darin not only makes his feature debut, but also ends up marrying his lovely co-star, Sandra Dee, just ten days after filming wrapped. Come September also features beautiful camerawork by Greta Garbos favorite cinematographer, William Davis, with designer Morton Haack creating Ms. Lollobrigidas exquisite gowns. Lolita: Jeremy Irons is a remarkable man with a poisonous wound. A memory of a fated childhood love and haunting urge to rediscover its lost passion Out of africa : A study of the life of Danish noblewoman and storyteller Karen (Isak) Dinesen Blixen, from her marriage and departure for Kenya in 1913 until her return to Denmark in 1931.
