The film opens in the shadowy bedroom of a sleeping beauty and seems to enter her mind and burrow into her dreams. Based on the 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.
Go forth on a most hypnotic odyssey with the Brothers Quay. A labyrinthine dreamscape bursting with detail and wonder, The Comb is a work of meticulously handcrafted cinema that both borrows from our world and seems projected directly from another dimension. The Brothers never fail to inspire us!
