Not to be confused with the 1963 film scored by John Barry, this new film directed by Jerome Salle (LARGO WINCH) takes place in the 1990's post-apartheid South Africa and features a score by Alexandre Desplat.

Here's an excerpt from Variety's review that mentions the score:

"Alexandre Desplat supplies a keening, operatic score that, however overplayed, sounds almost like the cry for justice and forgiveness that the rest of this morally and dramatically confused picture struggles to articulate."

Well, I hope this gets a release - still no news on Renoir or Venus in Fur...

It has been so long since the last Desplat score release.

smile Only for Desplat could we go a mere six months and have that be the case, lol.

I love him unreservedly, but usually a two month wait between albums of his feels long.

I am really looking forward to Desplat's Zulu. I only got into his music about two months ago. I was missing out ! I have since bought around 20 CD's of his. Desplat is easily one of the best working today. I will be looking forward to all his work.

They should release both Renoir and Zulu in one disc. Renoir has 30 minutes of music. Don't know about Zulu, but they could use it to fill the CD. Renoir is a great companion to La Fille Du Puisatier, with a beautiful main theme, and some nice violin solos.

Wow. It's weird to read a review where the score being full-out orchestrally is considered a good thing. Usually it's the opposite - like the way the always knock John Williams for supplying emotional
overkill in the Spielberg films. (Something I don't necessarily agree with or mind).

Maybe it's because people think that Desplat is the kind of composer who brings emotions to them, instead of shoving it into their throats.

Apparently the music in the trailer is by Desplat.

The movie has been released in France for some time now but no score release.

Anyone from France seen the film?
