MERCURY CINEMA7pm | 13 Morphett StFILM 7pm: The Piano (Director: Jane Campion, 1993)
Ada, her nine year old daughter and her piano arrive to an arranged marriage in the remote bush of nineteen century New Zealand. Of all her belongings, her husband refuses to transport the piano and it is left behind on the beach. Unable to bear its certain destruction, Ada strikes a bargain with an illiterate tattooed neighbour. She may earn her piano back if she allows him to do certain things while she plays; one back key for every lesson. The arrangement draws all three deeper and deeper into a complex emotional sexual bond remarkable for its naïve passion and frightening disregard for limits. (Cannes Film Festival)
Winner of three Academy Awards, three BAFTAs, two Cannes accolades including the Palme d’Or and 11 AFI awards The Piano arguably took the world by storm. An Australian/ New Zealand co-production, directed by New Zealand born, Australian educated Jane Campion.
