With its breathtaking visual style and careful attention to sound and movement, the movie provokes contemplation about the ways people communicate – through words, through music, through sex, and, most significantly, through touch.
– Julie Salamon in The Wall Street Journal, 14 December 1993
Great art is both immediately accessible and eternally elusive, having at its centre a powerful simplicity that speaks to anyone who cares to listen, that rewards every interpretation while embracing none. The Piano is great art.
– Rick Groen in The Globe and Mail (Toronto), 1993
(Campion) takes the breath away not by conventionally spectacular effects, but by the simple audacity of her choices about where to put the camera and what to show.
– Vincent Canby in New York Times, 16 October 1993
