The Piano (1993)
A drama directed by Jane Campion.
A mute pianist is wed to an American man and brings her daughter and piano with her. She is supposed to give lessons to a man who has the piano at his hut, but he just ends up molesting her and she eventually falls in love with him instead of her husband.
I've felt the pain of being away from something that I need and it will drive a person to do unreasonable things. The husband really overreacted about his wife's infidelity when he chopped her finger off. At the end I was really hoping that the woman would drown with the piano and was disappointed when she surfaced. Overall, I thought it was alright and the music was good, so I'm rating it worthy.
