A surrealist musical fantasy about a gang of robbers who are searching for a treasure hidden in little Giannino’s pianola. “Restless, scatterbrained, amusing, boring, cheap, lyrical, farcical – Herr Feher’s The Robber Symphony is certainly the most interesting film of the last twelve months” (Graham Greene, The Spectator, 1936).
