A tremendous collection of French film soundtracks – all penned to accompany the famous work of Jean-Pierre Melville, and all nearly as integral to the movies as the image itself! Melville is a very sound-conscious director, and the music for his films is a key force in guiding the actions of the camera – as much a narrative force as a scene-setting device, as you'll hear in the wonderful music on this set! The package features work from 10 different Melville films from the years 1959 to 1972 – and is presented with great notes in both English and France, with some key images from the movies too. Includes material from Bob Le Flambeur by Jo Boyer, Deux Hommes Dans Manhattan by Christian Chevallier, Leon Morin Pretre by Martial Solal, Le Doulos by Paul Misraki, L'Aine Des Ferchaux by Georges Delerue, Le Samourai by Francois De Roubaix, L'Armee Des Ombres by Eric Demarsan, Le Cercle Rouge by Eric Demarsan, Un Flic by Michel Colombier, and Musique Inedit Pour Le Cercle Rouge by Michel Legrand.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
