Synopsis

The Quay Brothers’ The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes is a richly woven fairytale, full of cultural references which aims to create something like poetic science fiction. On the eve of her wedding, beautiful opera singer Malvina Van Stille (Amira Casar) is mysteriously killed and abducted away from her famous conductor fiancé and taken to a fantasy island ruled by the malevolent Dr Droz (Gottfried John). The piano tuner Filiberto (Sarachu) arrives to repair Droz’s strange collection of automata, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Malvina’s fiancé. Passions and memories are stirred in the living dead Malvina and Filiberto tries to rescue her, but Droz has plans to include Filiberto in his plans... and trap him within his perverse universe.
