Quay Brothers - Institute Benjamenta Rb (Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 17 mei 2010

Jakob von Gunten (Mark Rylance) is admitted to The Institute Benjamenta, a peculiar and isolated school for servants. Whilst learning the submissive art of servitude, Jakob gradually uncovers the Institute s secrets. Adapted from a novel by remarkable Swiss writer Robert Walser, Institute Benjamenta is the striking live-action feature debut off the acclaimed animators, the Quay Brothers.
