Chinese pianist Lang Lang plays himself in The Flying Machine, a 3D film that premiered on Aug 30. It is the first time the 29-year-old has starred in a feature film.
The film, combining live action and animation, tells how Lang Lang, a pianist, whisks away a mother and her children on a magic piano to experience Polish pianist Chopin's life.
Lang Lang plays 12 etudes of Chopin in the film. At the premiere in Beijing he said the film would help more people understand the great Polish musician.
