The Sea of Pianos

A new short film by directors Tom Wrigglesworth and Mathieu Cuvelier follows Marc Manceaux, the philosophical owner of the oldest piano shop in Paris…

In La Mer de Pianos Manceaux describes how his shop deals in parts for vintage pianos. He harvests bits and pieces from various models so that other pianos “can sing again”.

While responsible for breathing life into restored instruments, his difficulty in sacrificing one piano for the sake of many others is plain to see in this lovely little film.

Directed, shot and edited by Tom Wrigglesworth and Mathieu Cuvelier
