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.

Must see for animators and lovers of Chopin
13 September 2011 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

The move is a 3d master piece which will raise the bar for anyone wishing to meld the different art forms of animation together. The movie takes the life of Chopin and makes it a mystical adventure that is as much a adventure for adults as it is for the children. In some regards it maybe more for adults because of the history and the complexity of the effects which will no doubt make it a contender for an Oscar in the animation and special effects categories. I do highly recommend the movie for the entire family. It might how ever be a little much for those who don't do well on amusement rides but it is an adventure not to be missed.
