The Sea of Pianos
In La Mer de Pianos Manceaux describes how his shop deals in parts for vintage pianos. He harvests bits and pieces from various models so that other pianos "can sing again".
While responsible for breathing life into restored instruments, his difficulty in sacrificing one piano for the sake of many others is plain to see in this lovely little film.

Lovely. Five minutes in another world.
Done in a way that only the French do. Trés bon.
As a pianist, i really enjoyed watching that.
'but that's what organ donation is all about' - effortless poetry. very charming
Absolutely "old school." A time when pride was taken seriously in doing the right thing in your job, craft and profession. I really like his comment of, he buys piano parts, and if he can't find it, he would make it.
Very nice way to begin my day.
