Have you heard what Legrand's music for EVA sounds like...?...

The film is also known as ‘Eve.” When the Hakim brothers (the notorious producers of “The Long Night,” “Purple Noon,” “and Belle De Jour”) handed Joseph Losey a fat contract and a pulp potboiler (by James Hadley Chase), Losey was sure it was his big break. After years of of tightly budgeted British programmers, he hoped “Eva” would be his ticket to the glossy world of the international cinema. But while Losey's final two-hour cut was hailed by critics as equal to his masterpiece “The Servant,” it was barely released, and remains largely unseen after more than 30 years. Losey disowned the producers' version, 15 minutes shorter than his own.

Recently released in its entirety for the first time in the U.S. by Kino International, Losey's original version of "Eva" (entitled "Eve"), which he described as "almost an orgasm," is included on their DVD along with the released version. The only surviving print of the longer version is a Swedish/Finnish release print preserved by the British Film Institute. Although that print has English dialogue, is has burned in Swedish and Finnish subtitles.

I've had the main theme on the Legrand box, so I had an idea of the vibe. I like the offset rhythms of the brass against the rhythm on many of the numbers; it has a jarring effect. This kind of territory is among my favorite with Legrand. It also sounds like at least one of the cues incorporated elements of "All or Nothing at All." I wonder if that was deliberate.

I love this score, it is yet another underrated score.

For me this is Legrand's best score and it has got a perfect album as well.

I'm surprised there isn't much more interest in this.

Well, if the director would have included some Marvel super heroes in the film, I'm sure there would be more interest!
