“Vous n’aurez pas ma haine”: L’histoire vraie d’Antoine Leiris, qui a perdu Hélène, sa femme bien-aimée, pendant les attentats du Bataclan à Paris. Adapté du livre d’Antoine Leyris.

Antoine lost his wife in the Bataclan bombing in Paris. In a Facebook post, he explains how he resists hate: he opposes that of terrorists to his love for his 3-year-old son. Bereaved, he seems to be losing ground.

Antoine lost his wife in the Bataclan bombing in Paris. In a Facebook post, he explains how he resists hate: He counters the terrorists’ hate with his love for his 3-year-old son.

Alto flute, string quartet, large string ensemble and electronics –

the composer Peter Hinderthuer finds a sensitive equivalent in the music for both the breakup of Antoine’s social structure and the painful return to life.

Peter’s score explores the space behind what is actually visible. The space of despair, hatred, memory and hope.
It is a music that oscillates between paradise and hell, light and darkness, angels and demons, life and death.
In its subtlety, it avoids all pathos, but not compassion.
It professes a cinema that touches and seduces.
And it possesses what movies are in their essence: magic.

Kilian Riedhof – Director

The terror of 13.11.2015 is real, the people who had to experience it are real, the losses, the pain and the grief are as well.
It was immediately clear that I could confidently throw my previous experience as a film composer overboard for this story. 
So I first wrote An Ode To Live – my attempt to counter the terrorists’ will to destroy with beauty and sophistication, as Leiris suggests in a TV interview.
Who knows how the somewhat strange-seeming “You will not have my hate” would sound if I hadn’t been allowed to compose it completely freely without the footage from the editing room.
The other pieces were also created at the request of the director away from the film and were only applied to the film very late in the editing process. 
I am very grateful to Kilian for this way of working, so I was able to focus fully on the emotional significance of this story.
