A forest of Wool and Steel is more like a novel, packed with emotions and music. Rather than a good story, this one focused more on the aesthetics and how to represent the sound of the music a piano creates with nature and, especially, the forest. There was a ghost of a story, with the main character choosing to become a piano tuner and working as one, while encountering some piano players and helping them create the perfect sound that they are looking for. But the story was just okay, as there was no intensity nor real point in it. Rather, the breathtaking views of the forest and the water, as well as the music, they were the main protagonists of the movie. Finally, the performances were good from all the cast members.
