Seriously. I ask because I'm afraid to watch The Piano
again. I remember it with great fondness from when it first came out. I saw it in the cinema and thought it was great. Somehow over the years I never got round to watching any of Jane Campion's other films until In The Cut
a couple of months ago - which I thought was the most godawful piece of pretentious crap I'd seen in years (I've probably railed against it somewhere on this thread but I'm too lazy to look.) I daren't watch The Piano
again in case it is the most pretentious wank and it destroys the memory of my enjoyment of it.
