The Piano is a 1993 film about a mute pianist and her daughter, set during the mid-19th century in a rainy, muddy frontier New Zealand backwater. The film was written and directed by Jane Campion, and stars Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill and Anna Paquin. It features a score for the piano by Michael Nyman that became a bestselling soundtrack album. Hunter played her own piano pieces for the film, and also served as teacher for Paquin, earning herself three different screen credits.

The Piano -- Harvey Keitel as George Baines. For those of you who don't remember the tattoo, here is a photo of it:


The partial Maori tattoo on Keitel's nose shows that that he is not full Maori. Something has impeded his full assimilation into the culture.
