The title might not inspire great expectations but The Piano in a Factory is the kind of breezy delight that is guaranteed to lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face. There’s a hint of The Full Monty and a flavour of Charlie Chaplin to the story of Chen (Wang Qian-yuan), a steelworker who is devoted to his young daughter. His estranged wife enters the picture demanding a divorce and seeking custody of the girl. The girl seems happy to go with whichever parent can provide her with a piano so Chen gathers his buddies and vows to use the facilities at their old factory to build the piano of her dreams. A hugely enjoyable tale with a light comic touch and even the odd dance sequence.
