Overview
From the fantastic imagination of The Quay Brothers, 'The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes' is a visually ravishing, enchanting and surreal tale that interweaves live action with beautifully realised animation and puppetry.

On the eve of her wedding, the beautiful opera singer Malvina is seemingly mysteriously killed and abducted by the malevolent Dr Droz. Felisberto, an innocent piano tuner, is summoned to Droz's secluded villa to service his strange musical automata. Little by little, Felisberto learns of the doctor's plans to stage a 'diabolical opera' and of Malvina's fate. He secretly conspires to rescue her, only to become trapped himself in the web of Droz's perverse universe...
