Jane Campion's masterpiece follows mute Scotswoman Ada (Hunter) as she travels to 19th century New Zealand with her piano and daughter to enter into an arranged marriage. Soon she begins a passionate and erotic affair with her illiterate neighbour as a means to regaining her treasured instrument. Impeccable performances lift this highly charged piece to the realms of classic cinema. Undoubtedly one of the best films of the 90s.
