Story – The Piano Movie
The movies is set in the the mid-nineteenth century in a rainy, muddy & marshy New Zealand forest. Ada, and her young daughter Flora, are sent to NewZealand for an arranged marriage. Once they land in New Zealand, they find that the living conditions are harsh there.
Ada suffers more grief when her husband Stewart decides to leave her piano behind since he does not have enough people to carry all their belongings further from the shore.
Baines, who is a local guy takes the piano and gets it perfectly tuned after that long journey. Ada, who desperately wants her piano back, goes to Baines to try to convince him to return the Piano.
But Baines asks Ada to earn back her piano by giving him piano lessons. He says that during the lessons, he would simply like to listen to her playing the piano… with other conditions. Ada agrees to it, though reluctantly.
Soon, Ada and Baines start geting closer to each other and their relationship is transformed. Stewart, who is Ada’s husband, finds out about their relationship… and in a fit of rage chops off the index finger of Ada with an axe. He tells her that if she does not forget Baines, he will chop her remaining fingers as well.
But, by then Ada and Baines had already started liking each other. Stewart realises this and lets Ada go with Baines… Towards the end, it is shown that Ada’s missing finger is replaced with a silver digit made by Baines.
The Piano is definitely one of the better movies I have ever seen; it has been appreciated by both critics as well as audiences everywhere!
