A most unusual story told with equally unusual conviction. Traude Krüger has been giving piano lessons in a women's prison for decades. She meets Jenny, a reserved young woman convicted of murder who was once considered a child musical prodigy. Her attempt to guide her pupil to victory in a music competition leads to a difficult, contradictory relationship between the two women which fascinates to the very last second.
Arthouse Cinema is the regular film program of the Goethe-Institut. In Bandung, every Thursday at the end of the month we screen independent movies, avant-garde movies, retrospectives, experimental films or documentary films from Europe – anything but the mainstream.
