Actually, i've only seen Antichrist and a Danish hospital themed TV-series. Some scenes from Dogville also. I guess it's safe to say that his films have a certain flavour which doesn't necessarily appeal to everyone. Talented director, no doubt. It's just that nowadays he claims to be a Nazi.

I only read the book the film is based on ("Die Klavierspielerin" by Elfriede Jelinek). As I understand, the film is actually in French? Is the story still taking place in Vienna?

Yep, French. The story takes place in Vienna and Erika Kohut still lives with her mother although she's almost in her fifties.

Whats the point in even recommending American films? All the movies I watch are American bar a few every so often.
