The Comb (from the Museums of Sleep)

Crew
Directed by Quay Brothers


THE COMB opens in the shadowy bedroom of a sleeping beauty and seems to enter her mind and burrow into her dreams. Based on a fragment of text by the Austrian writer Robert Walser, THE COMB is an exploration of the subconscious visualized as a labyrinthine playhouse haunted by a doll-like explorer. A mesmerizing and resonant blend of live action and animation, THE COMB is set to a sensuous score of violins, guitars and attic room cries and whispers, and bathed in a gorgeous golden glow. 

THE COMBis available on DVD as part of the PHANTOM MUSEUMS: THE SHORT FILMS OF THE QUAY BROTHERS box set. It will be touring on 35mm as part of the QUAY BROTHERS IN 35MM series and will be released on a Quay Brothers Blu-ray on October 20, 2015.
