Bright, intelligent, passionate and free, Eleanos is Karl Marx’s young daughter. Among the first women to link the themes of feminism and socialism, she takes part in the worker’s battles and fights for women’s rights and the abolition of child labor. In 1883 she meets Edward Aveling and her life is crushed by a passionate but tragic love story….

“Music was fundamental in contributing to the tone of the film. As I always do, I made my musical choices while writing the script, choosing to use for certain situations the music of the Downtown Boys, a contemporary Marxist punk. Rock band. I thought that this transgressive band would render the images more powerful, bringing them somehow out or above time, and adding also an ironic detachment from the most dramatic events. The Downtown Boys have also reinterpreted the French L’Internationale. On the other hand, in order to comment romantically and ironically on the more sentimental parts, I used pieces of classical music, mainly by Chopin but also Liszt, reinterpreted with modern sounds and arrangements by Gatto Ciliegia contro il Grande Freddo, the band I’ve always worked with for the musical scores of my films and whose melancholic atmospheres I am particularly fond of.”

BENDING REALITY

BENDING REALITY

By Maximilien Mathevon

Reality and Questions without answer…

Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd

Bending Reality talks about the perception of reality, the faculty to interpret and manipulate this reality, to transform and sublimate it. What is true, what is wrong, what are the truths that exist behind appearances and how do they parasitize them? 

I wanted to create a constantly evolving sound universe, invaded by musical interferences which distort the appearances of the music.

I have also used unusual rhythms on some tracks (7/4) to create a sense of shift and that something is not working in the usual way.

This album is a constantly changing canvas, nourished by sounds and rhythms which add up, add to each other and evolve.

“Festival de Cannes

    Sélection Officielle”

Une musique et des maux. Les notes superflues mais tellement vrais au milieu des morts et des vivants. La guerre entend faire un autre son assourdissant, bouleversant. Ici en Syrie, plus loin au Yemen et maintenant a nos portes en Ukraine.

La vie est fragile, les instants d’une émotion rare. Plus rien n’est protégé, sauf les âmes qui donne du piano, de la voix…

Gabriel Yared est ce peintre d’un chaos de vie, imaginaire d’un printemps qui pourrait éclore, mais les destins se croisent, s’embrouille et parfois c’est le réel qui se dessine entre amertumes et regards vers un ailleurs.

Les notes sont brèves, romantiques et un piano se fait entendre toujours et de plus en plus fort.

Merci de ce moment d’espoir.

Karim, un pianiste rêvant d’une carrière en Europe, vit dans une ville du Moyen-Orient déchirée par la guerre où les modes de vie modernes ont été interdits par un groupe extrémiste. Il est obligé de vendre son piano pour ramasser de l’argent et partir. Mais les choses s’enchevêtrent lorsque son piano est abattu. Karim se lance alors dans une quête dangereuse pour réparer ses clés cassées…

Broken Keys est un film sur un pianiste rêvant d’une carrière en temps de guerre. C’est un film qui traite également de la poursuite externe et interne de la liberté et de la paix par le protagoniste. Les acteurs et l’équipe ont pris un grand risque lors du tournage à la frontière entre la Syrie et l’Irak, car ces zones sont fortement touchées par la guerre en cours.

J’ai eu une grande et fructueuse collaboration avec le réalisateur, Jimmy Keyrouz. Tout d’abord, Jimmy m’a envoyé son court métrage à regarder, qui était basé sur la même histoire que Broken Keys. J’ai adoré et j’ai décidé d’aller de l’avant avec le projet. Jimmy est venu me rencontrer à Paris et nous avons eu une longue conversation sur toute la musique de piano classique qui devait être utilisée dans le film. J’ai ensuite commencé à travailler sur mes thèmes principaux pendant qu’il tournait. Il m’envoyait quelques scènes pour que je les regarde, et donc ça allait et venait.

J’ai ensuite commencé à travailler sur mes thèmes principaux pendant qu’il tournait. Il m’envoyait quelques scènes pour que je les regarde, et donc ça allait et venait. Nous nous sommes revus à Paris et avons passé quelques jours à parcourir la musique que j’ai composée, à réfléchir et à comprendre les choses ensemble. Jimmy est très musical et comprend les capacités et les qualités de la musique qui élèvent les images et engagent le public. Pour moi, c’est la collaboration idéale entre un metteur en scène et un compositeur. Broken Keys est un film remarquable qui parle à mon cœur, car il parle du pouvoir de la musique alors qu’une nation est en guerre.

Cd Digital & Cd Physical – Limited Edition

Welcome to the artistic world of Greg Haye discover this atypical, sensitive and generous artist with an unusual career (inspired by David Bowie, Cat Stevens or Sting, Neil Young, Ed Sheeran or Ronan Keating)…

A voice among Voices, this is how it describes itself. His first goal to become a professional footballer but health (or fate) made him stop this promising career of which he keeps a mental strength which allows him to pass the tests.

If it was necessary to make the words resonate, to stretch the emotions like flaming arrows, it is done. If we had to adorn ourselves with stars under the starry sky, we found.

Greg Haye is a wonderful traveler of horizon and depths. From the rhythmic words there is all this San Francisco could have given us. The Isle of White could be resurrected and the blue paradises would resonate. We are in the imperfections of modernity and technology without forgetting the beautiful poetic souls. Greg Have is one of his adventurous dreamers.

SIMPLE WOMEN

SIMPLE WOMEN

(Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Director Chiara Malta

Music by Olivier Mellano

Song “Kool Thing” by Sonic Youth

In this innovative fiction debut from Chiara Malta, a director with epilepsy trying to make a film about the life of famed Romanian actor Elina Löwensohn discovers that her real-life subject bears little resemblance to the star she idolized.

Federica (Jasmine Trinca), a clumsy and graceless Italian director, had her first epileptic seizure on Christmas Day 1989, while watching the execution of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife Elena on television. Since childhood, her only passion was cinema, and one film in particular played an important role: Hal Hartley’s Simple Men, in which Romanian actor Elina Löwensohn has an onscreen seizure. For Federica, it was a critical moment of reflection and connection.

Director Chiara Malta was inspired by a meeting with the real Elina Löwensohn, an experience that started her questioning what it is that exists behind a simulacrum. In her tender, playful, and multi-layered fiction debut, she crafts a film that cleverly toys with perceptions and projections. Guiding us through the unconscious, Malta marches her characters from realism to the realm of magic realism, all the while weaving a captivating fable about idol worship and identity. The hypnotizing and innovative Simple Women proceeds like a colourful matryoshka: with the removal of each layer preconceived images take on new and spectacular forms.

Traces the life of Anita Mui, Hong Kong’s disappeared Cantopop star.

As someone who grew up listening to Anita Mui’s music, this movie was nostalgia and equally as captivating. Beautifully shot, with amazing CGI work done to bring back some of the old Hong Kong infrastructure, the director of this movie really knew the true essence of Hong Kong back in the 80’s and 90’s. I loved how it focused on the more positive side of her life (without much family drama) because that’s how we want to remember Anita by. It was amazing to see her story being told as I believe that this movie will give more exposure to people in my generation these days, and to see how Anita Mui was one of Hong Kong’s greatest artists that pioneered the Cantopop genre. I had an amazing experience watching this movie and it’s definitely one of the better biopics created in a long time.

Les icones ne se ressemblent jamais et pourtant les publics se reconnaissent en elles et les couvrent de leurs larmes et de leurs espoirs. Anita Mui incarne une de ses déesses pop, privée de la vie assez jeune pour cause de maladie. Ses refrains sont restes dans la mémoire Canto Pop dans les rues de Hong Kong et de toute la région Sud-Est de la Chine et bien au-delà. Hongkong star system est une réalité et les déchirements ou les retournements de vie y sont fréquents. Alimentée par la presse et la ferveur locale mais surtout par l’enthousiasme des chansons qui parlent simplement au gens.

Magnifique orchestrations et interprétations du talentueux Elliot Leung.

En peu de compositions, Elliot Leung a signé les scores de films remarquables et qui restent dans le patrimoine chinois.

Hellen Page

It was a very refreshing for me to musically reimagine Hong Kong in the previous era. In this delicate score, I crafted three themes, which are first introduced, and then later interwoven interactively. I also loved the opportunity to feature solos played by the accordion, the samisen, the cello and the violin. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I’d like to thank Director Lok Man Leung and the production entrusting me with my unique creative approach.

Elliot Leung – Composer

Elliot’s fresh and bold approach to his composition injected new life into the film gracefully. It was a pleasure working with him and I greatly enjoyed his music.

Follows an investigator as he prevents a terrorist attack during a symposium held by Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption. He later finds it has links to human trafficking in Thailand…

The main’s themes from the previous four films remain, and a few new themes appear for several of the new characters. The music in this film is generally bolder, since the plot is bolder. Also, I have used the Cor Anglais, for the first time in my music. Is the exotic sounding texture and it fits the mysterious aspects of G Storm.
