A SciFi film with or about pipes or tubes?

Name This Film: I'm trying to remember the name of a dystopian/SciFi film I saw years back in the 90s, could have been from the 80s. The premise must have been similar to City of Ember, with a kid or teen in an underground city. I remember pipes or tubes featuring prominently, and think they were in the title too.

I thought it was called 'city of tubes' or something similar, but I can not find any mention on IMDB or Google. Has anyone seen this film and can remember the name?

Best answer: Was is Life on the Edge (aka Meet the Hollowheads)? My AskMeFi question (and answers) about a similar-sounding movie is here...

The City of Lost Children, maybe?

Response by poster: Hollowheads. Oh god, I'm not sure. This trailer looks so completely different from what I remember, but the german title also includes the tubes part ("Rohr frei..."), so I think this must be it.

It's definitely not City of Lost Children.

This thread in the blue about Meet the Hollowheads should give you enough info to figure out whether this is your movie. Also, it's on Netflix streaming.
