Nina Hoss is one of Europe's finest actors, from her award-winning performances in Barbara and Phoenix, to a prominent role in TV series Homeland.

Here she plays a music teacher with a fanatical and meticulous obsession with excellence – is there any other kind in films? She has identified a young musician with stage fright as being in need of her initially protective mentoring, though her attention to him comes at the expense of her own son, also a musician. But what seems to be her generosity gradually reveals itself to be something much darker.

Hoss is magnificent, and the film's success depends largely on her genius.
