ALONE IN BERLIN – In Cinemas TODAY – From The Grand Budapest Hotel to Zero Dark Thirty: Alexandre Desplat’s Top 5 Film Scores
Berlin, 1940. Working class couple Otto and Anna Quangel receive the news that their only son has lost his life in the battlefield and decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way. Soon the Gestapo is hunting "the threat".
ALONE IN BERLIN, in cinemas today, is scored by Alexandre Desplat whose wonderful music heightens the emotion and intensity of the film.
With another masterful soundtrack added to his list of credits we looked back at some of Desplat’s most impressive work to date...
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
The third collaboration between filmmaker Wes Anderson and Alexandre Desplat made for the Oscar winning score to The Grand Budapest Hotel. This charming score matches Anderson’s quirky cinematic style perfectly and enhances his hilariously outlandish vision.
The Imitation Game (2014)
Desplat is known for his fast paced work and produced the score for The Imitation Game within three weeks. This nominee for Best Original Score at the 2015 Oscars captures every aspect of Alan Turing’s exciting story.
The King’s Speech (2010)
The BAFTA winning score to Tom Hooper’s highly acclaimed The King’s Speech provides a classy accompaniment to this touching tale.
The Queen (2006)
The Queen saw the first collaboration between Desplat and director Stephen Frears, which saw the two work together on Tamara Drewe and Philomena in the following years. This score enhances intimate moments within the film and effortlessly supports Helen Mirren’s Oscar winning performance.
Zero Dark Thirty (2012)
This Oscar winning film saw a departure from the usual charm of Desplat’s previous compositions. A clever, gritty score adds depth and emotion throughout the film’s many complex scenes.
