Four Minutes on IMDb
Tough young Jenny is serving time in a women's prison in Luckau, Germany. She meets her match in the elderly Traude, a Prussian woman who has been teaching piano to the inmates since World War II. But Traude's near-obsessive attachment to Jenny goes far beyond musical professionalism, becoming something much more fervid and intense. Everything hangs in the balance when the dramatic details of both Jenny and Traude's pasts threaten to be revealed. Director Chris Kraus's script is packed with drama, thrills and explosive and lurid secrets, not to mention characters that clash with the force of a powder keg. From the barbarous environment of the prison - where not a soul can be trusted - to the glow of a refined concert hall, Jenny has only the four minutes of her performance to achieve redemption.
