The PianoTuner of EarthQuakes (2005) DVD9
On the eve of her wedding to the conductor Adolfo Blin, the famous soprano Malvina von Stille (Amira Casar) collapses during a private recital, and is declared dead by Dr. Emmanuel Droz (Gottfried John). A fervent admirer of the beautiful singer, Dr. Droz transports Malvina to his asylum, a dark, remote place called the Villa Azucena. The doctor is an alienist, a healer of broken minds, and there he sets about reviving the personality of Malvina, who is resurrected but remains in a catatonic state.
As part of her therapy, Droz intends to put on a performance of an opera, to which a select group of guests have been invited. The performance will make use of seven strange hydraulic automata that are scattered throughout the doctor’s estate, mechanical objects with musical properties. In order to recalibrate and synchronise the strange constructions, Droz hires a piano tuner, Don Felisberto Fernandez (Cesar Saracho).
