Erika is in her late 30s and a piano teacher at the conservatory in Vienna. Living alone with her elderly mother and emotionally sealed off from the world, Erika’s only sex life is provided by voyeurism and masochistic injuries until one of her students attempts to seduce her. Rare fact, the film garnered 3 prizes in Cannes: the Grand Prix, the Best Actress award for Isabelle Huppert and the award for Best Actor award for Benoît Magimel.

The film will be screened from a 35mm print.
