Synopsis

Isabelle Huppert gives a performance of astounding emotional intensity as Erika Kohut, a repressed middle-aged woman who teaches piano at the Vienna Conservatory. When one of Erika's students, the handsome and assured Walter Klemmer, attempts to seduce her, the barriers that she has carefully erected around her claustrophobic world are shattered - unleashing a previously inhibited extreme and uncontrollable desire.
