The Piano

Posted by lori . 1 Comment

Set in the mid-19th century, this is the story of a mute pianist who travels with her daughter and her beloved piano to New Zealand  for an arranged marriage to a New Zealand frontiersman.  When her husband won’t move the piano from the coast, a neighbor agrees to buy the piano and move it if Ada will give him piano lessons.  This is a love story.  It is haunting and erotic.  The cinematography and soundtrack are dreamlike and extraordinarily beautiful. It is an exceptional period piece, but the stories it tells are timeless.
