The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes is the breathtakingly beautiful and long-awaited second feature from the Brothers Quay. On the eve of her wedding, the beautiful opera singer Malvina is mysteriously killed and abducted by a malevolent Dr. Droz. Felisberto, an innocent piano tuner, is summoned to Droz’s secluded villa to service his strange musical automatons. 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...

Starring Amira Casar (Catherine Breillat’s Anatomy Of Hell), Assumpta Serna (Pedro Almodovar’s Matador), Cesar Sarachu (Institute Benjamenta) and Gottfried John (Fassbinder’s Marriage Of Maria Braun).

The extraordinary Brothers Quay are two of the world’s most original filmmakers. Identical twins who were born in Pennsylvania in 1947, Stephen and Timothy Quay studied illustration in Philadelphia before going on to the Royal College of Art in London, where they started to make animated shorts in the 1970s. They have lived in London ever since, making their unique and innovative films under the aegis of Koninck Studios.

Opens Fri 11.17 at Cinema Village, 22 E 12th St, 212.924.3363, $10
