Description

Details

Jakob (Mark Rylance) wants to be of service. Admitted to a peculiar school for servants run by domineering Johannes (Gottfried John) and his sorrowful sister Lisa (Alice Krige), Jakob gradually uncovers the mystical Institute's secrets and, by extension, those of life itself. This striking live action feature from the master animators is a beautifully realised anti-fairytale. The Quays' visionary style breathes life into every corner of this fragile world, which shimmers with luminous energy and hypnotic beauty.
