#6 ~ The Piano
The Piano deserves a place among the classics. The story, the cinematography and the amazing acting by Holly Hunter and young Anna Paquin was astounding and powerful. it is not just a tale of a woman’s passion and story, but the story of each one of us in some way. The sexual tension, and antagonistic mood, moved me in a way a film rarely does. I could watch this film over and over and see something new each time i watch it. Makes it feel like its the first time. Hunter and Paquin won well deserved Oscars for Actress and supporting Actress. Jane Campion won Best Original Screenplay Oscar for this wonderful film which was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director.
