Dir. Jane Campion, Australia, 1993, 120 min
Jane Campion became the first female director to win the Palme d’Or for ‘The Piano’, her triumphant masterpiece about a mute woman’s rebellion in a newly colonized, Victorian-era New Zealand. Soundtracked by Michael Nyman’s evocative score, it won Oscars for Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin in career-defining roles and Best Screenplay for Campion’s typically individualistic, female-centric script. Concerning itself with Campion’s prevailing theme – women on the edge of societal norms - its immediate urgency and tremendous expressive power makes it long overdue for revisiting in cinemas.
