This is a compilation comprising all the three films scored by prestigious composer Bruno Coulais for film director Benoît Jacquot: one of the most intense, daring and suggestive collaborations in modern French cinema.
Although Jacquot met Bruno Coulais with the occasion of the telefilm “Gaspard le bandit” in 2006, was to “Villa Amalia” (2009), starring Isabelle Huppert, his first collaboration for the big screen. As it was portraying the life of a pianist and composer facing a crisis, an very special original score was needed: a set of brief piano pieces which came all together at the end to form a finished work.
It became such a fruitful collaboration that both artists did replay the experience in the next two films by the director: “Au Fond des Bois” and “Les adieux à la Reine”, both providing outstanding results.
These three complete films scores appear under one album as a testimony to one collaboration in the European film universe that cannot be missed. 70 minutes of music, this album is presented in digipak form, included a 12-page booklet with liner notes by Stéphane Lerouge, including statements by Bruno Coulais and Benoît Jacquot.
