In order to play the piano, Ada had to go to Baines’s cabin every day for piano lessons, and Flora and a puppy were playing outside. Ada plays the piano intently, but Baines does not practice the piano, but just obsessively looks at her. For him, the piano lessons are a beautiful enjoyment.
Baines knew that Ada wanted to re-own her own piano, so she asked her "barter": when she played the piano, he did something to her, and if she agreed, count a key at a time. Ada agreed. For Baines, this is not a pure game. This is the expression of lust.

Jane Campion's Piano Lesson is an almost perfect female film. The so-called feminine film means that it shows people no longer the confrontation with men in the secular sense of women, but the process of reconciliation with reality after a woman who is independent and able to be self-sufficient in spirit. If you like, you can also think of it as a growing movie. The growth mentioned here does not refer to the youthful growth from the juvenile world to the adult world in the usual sense, but to a mature person, a mature woman, how to seek balance in the conflict between the living environment and the spiritual world to gain inner heart. The process of calm. The film sets the environment as a claustrophobic island, just to get everything settled. On such a stage, there is no sound, only the melody, everyone is suffering in silence, but after making the struggle become helpless, they are intoxicated.
Director Jane Campion once said: "The deeper I think about the script, the more I understand that there must be an object to give the story a special character. In many programs I chose the piano, the piano can be said to be human hands. The mysterious creation, which is a symbol of civilization. Visually speaking, the piano is in stark contrast to the life of the indigenous people of New Zealand. The passion of romance exists in our lives, and sometimes we will live for it. Although I believe This is not a completely sensible way of life. It also understands that the results it brings are often dangerous, but I will still cherish it and believe that it is a symbol of great courage.” The
plot gradually enters the realm of sexual turmoil and sensuality. The process is not inconspicuous and artificial. All three embody their own humanity: hard work is the life philosophy of Ada's husband; Baines is like the uncultivated virgin forest, full of unbridled wildness and instinct; Aida's fascination with the piano is due to playing the piano. Make up for the obstacles in her language. The attraction of the original beauty is the same as the classical charm of the piano, and it has irresistible magic to the nature of human beings. Hunter played Aida, although there is no line, but full of passion, expressive power is almost equivalent to shouting. The daughter of Paquin is even more unusual. She inherited her mother.The strong personality, the body also carries the paranoid paranoia and the military-like opinion. Both were awarded an Oscar. Most of the film's observations on the heroine's "Red Apricot Wall" are from the child's perspective, so its style has a mystery and a vague ambiguity. The film and the "Farewell My Concubine" tied for the Golden Palm Award in Cannes.
