Abstract: We show that critical modules of Gelfand-Kirillov dimension 2 and multiplicity $d$ over an elliptic algebra have (up to modules of lower GK-dimension and shifting) a presentation by $d\times d$-matrices of linear forms. In the language of non-commutative algebraic geometry this amounts to a generic description of ``curves'' of degree $d$ in a projective quantum plane.
