Description

Various Artists - The Face of An Angel (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Inspired by the killing of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy, director Michael Winterbottom (Welcome To Sarajevo, 24 Hour Party People, The Trip (TV)) looks beyond the headlines to the media and the public's insatiable lust for violent stories, fictional and real. The film stars Daniel Bruhl, Kate Beckinsale and in her first major film role, supermodel, Cara Delevingne. Composer Harry Escott first came to prominence in 2005 with his score to the influential psychological horror film Hard Candy. Working in both film and TV his credits includes, Deep Water, The Selfish Giant, Stephen Fry In America and Poppy Shakespeare. The Face Of An Angel is his third collaboration with BAFTA winning director Michael Winterbottom (following a A Mighty Heart and The Road To Guantanamo). The soundtrack also features Mi Fido Di Te by one of Italy's biggest singing stars, Lorenzo "Jovanotti" Cherubini. “Harry Escott’s score heightens the poetic-exotic atmosphere of Hubert Taczanowski’s lensing, particularly in the final scenes, which read more like a tone poem than narrative”
- Hollywood Reporter

Reviews

Just as Michael Winterbottom’s fictionalisation of the Amanda Knox trial fuses ancient history and modern media, so Harry Escott’s score effectively mixes the old and the new. Processed effects chug, whirr and throb menacingly beneath beautiful bursts of solo violin and countertenor. Occasionally Italian pop songs butt in and shatter the mood, but the real takeaway here is Escott’s Fellinia theme, five minutes and 30 seconds of heartbreaking loveliness. - Empire Magazine ****
