It's about the workers, 8 June 2008
Author: mapleleaf-4 from United States

The stars of this film ought to have been the piano and the people who dedicated their lives to building it. Through very personal interviews, the workers impress us with their commitment, but they are never allowed fully to impress us with their skills. Instead, much of this already short film focuses on the end users (the pianists and their needs, opinions, tastes), on endless shots of 'L1037' (just so we know it's the same piano), and on the Steinway Building (in case we forgot where we are.) Perhaps the filmmaker felt the technical details of how a piano is made would not be compelling enough to carry the movie. Still, I was disappointed that I came away with no real understanding of what each and every worker was contributing, how all the pieces fit together, and what skills these passionate artisans bring.
