Hello everyone,
I am new to the forums and I hope I placed this topic in the right section. I apologize if I did not.

There is a particular scene from the movie, "The House of Yes" where the main characters play a piano duet. Off and on for the past 5 years, I've been trying to figure out the name of the piece. I contacted the composer, to no avail.

I began thinking that maybe this was a classical or romantic piano piece. I began to think: who better to ask then those intelligent people on a piano forum.

Since many of you have so much more experience then I do, I figured you can identify this piece. The piece starts around 1:14. Someone once told me that Mozart wrote many duets for he and his sister. Could this be one of them? Although I must admit it doesn't sound very classical.

Any ideas?
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question.

He didn't do that, so it must have been his sister who wrote that. Cheers, Nannerl!

It is not a single classical piece. It begins with "popcorn" till 1.14 cool. Then some other piece is played and on 1.48 I hear some piano duet transcription of "Hotel California" by The Eagles. After that there is some popular jazz tune in it. It's a sort of remix of some songs. None of them are classical..

Well, I don't know if any of the Mozart's did write it. It was just a speculation and I was wondering if anyone recognized the piano piece: heard it played, played it themselves, etc...

I don't know the piece, but I would guess either Ravel or Messiaen?

I think it's just an amalgam of things that sound nice in a film, not more, not less.

Its Chopsticks until 1:14 and at 1:48 some jazzy piano thing happens. I'm talking about the piece in the middle. Sorry, I didn't make it clear. It's the piano piece played first by Park Posey and then with her brother as a duet.

Oh it is indeed Chopsticks instead Popcorn, but the piece on 1.48 is a sort of classical version of Hotel california. Listen to this
