Fantastic Short Film Friday - The Piano Tuner (live-action)

And we are back with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.

It's time for another amazing short film for all you short film lovers out there. A thriller about a blind Piano Tuner who is more then he seems. The less said about the plot the better, but this short is a great example of what the short form of cinema can do. Here is the 13-minute French thriller, The Piano Tuner from filmmaker Oliver Treiner.

Here's the synopsis:
A blind Piano Tuner finds more then he bargained for when he makes a house call to an old couples home.

Talk about tense. When I first watched this I couldn't help but wonder what the whole point was, a short filled with unlikeable characters acting selfishly. Then around the 10 minute mark the short turns and becomes creepy as hell.

Check this out if you want to see something that will leave you breathless. Check this out if you want to an amazing foreign short that shows you why no one does thrillers like the French. Enjoy this weeks dose of short film goodness with, The Piano Tuner.
