Storyline

In this short film punctuated by cartoonlike sight gags, a self styled soloist performs a concert outside The Royal Albert Hall in London by "playing" the black & white stripes of a crosswalk which resembles a piano keyboard; he wins over passersby, including a constable and a group of more traditional musicians.

a fun romp
4 February 2004 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

a concert pianist performs his piece by stepping on the piano-like lines of a crosswalk near royal albert hall. the street becomes his stage and the world, his audience. it's short, sweet, and worth a laugh or two.

p.s. i've always wanted to comment on one of these all-but-unknown shorts, and now i have. i can die happy.
