Ada, a mute Scottish woman, expresses her deepest feelings through her piano. An arranged marriage takes her and her daughter to the wilds of 19th-century New Zealand. With its sensual, dark cinematography, spectacular coastal scenery and grandiose music, this unique and timeless evocation of a woman’s awakening is an intoxicating sensory experience driven by music and exalted passion. With The Piano, filmmaker Jane Campion became the first woman ever to win the Palme d’Or at Cannes, thirty years ago this year.
