The Pianist by Roman Polanski( visu )
19 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 587 libraries worldwide
Based on Elfriede Jelinek's 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-inflicting masochistic experiments. Drawn to Erika's unrelenting perfectionism, Walter (Magimel), a vain and handsome young student, tragically mistakes her unravelling sanity for growing ardor. After an unspeakably cruel assault on another conservatory student, Erika and Walter's perverse courtship explodes in an encounter The New Yorker declared, "may be the strangest sex scene in the history of the movies."
Le temps du loup = Time of the wolf by Michael Haneke( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 177 libraries worldwide
"An extremely timely and prescient piece of social commentary, Time of the Wolf follows a family's difficult journey immediately after an unknown apocalyptic event. Haneke never tells us what happened, or where, or when, but instead puts us directly into the terrifying aftermath, with all of its confusion, uncertainty, and danger. As all social laws and codes are suddenly overturned, Heneke asks us to find our own way through. Time of the Wolf is Haneke's most intense film, and also his most hopeful."--Container

Their future seems to be inexorably heading on a collision course with the forces that have locked them out."--All Movie Guide
