Storyline

'The Flying Machine' is a 3D live action/animation family feature film about a stressed out business-woman, Georgie (played by Heather Graham), who takes her two children to see the animation film 'Magic Piano', which is being performed live by world famous pianist Lang Lang. A magical event occurs and Georgie's kids get transported inside the animation world, and Georgie has to pursue them, with a little help from Maestro Lang Lang. The "Magic Piano" which is a stop-motion animation tells a story of Anna, a girl whose dad had to leave Poland to work in London. Anna and her cousin Chip Chip find a broken piano which magically transforms into a flying machine and takes them across the Europe. The girl hopes to meet her longing dad. Written by Anonymous

Musical 3-D animation
26 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Superb animation set to Chopin music played by Lang Lang. Anyone, adult or child, who likes the original Fantasia will love this. The variety of animation is delightful and the three dimensional presentation heightens the excitement of the story which takes one from a nostalgically pre-modern Poland to high-tech London. My only reservation is some of the casting on the non-animated characters but this does not detract from the central story which is wonderfully moving and highly relevant to the situation in the world today, featuring an economic migrant father and a daughter left behind in Poland. The short films that are incorporated are varied and charming.
