The Piano in a Factory ---- Chinese movie

The Piano in a Factory - a Chinese movie.

We watched this film over 2 evenings.
Very interesting. 
Premise - couple in the beginnings of a divorce with a young daughter (who plays piano) caught in the middle.
Father believes if he can obtain a piano his daughter will choose to stay with him - mother is only marginally in the film, she has a "wealthy" boy-friend.
Father is a member of a musical troupe that performs at various events (funerals, weddings, etc.) he enlists his fellow musicians and friends to assist him in obtaining a piano - when that "fails", he devises a plan to build a piano.
There were many scenes that reminded us of a Charlie Chaplin film, the music is always interesting and the ending will have you applauding.
Hope you will try it - yes, it does have subtitles, but many scenes don't really require conversation to convey what's occurring.
The main male actor won Best Actor award at the Tokyo Int'l Film Festival.
