The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes

Stephen Quay , Timothy Quay
GERMANY-UK-FRANCE      99 m.
Synopsis

The Quay brothers are two of the most incorruptible and imaginative artists to have come out of modern animation cinema. In their second feature they apply their stop-motion techniques to the morbid Gothic tale of an opera singer kidnapped by a sinister doctor who wants to turn her into an automaton.
