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

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.
