Boomkat Product Review:
For the lovers, an expanded reissue of Philippe Sarde’s symphonic soundtrack masterpiece, featuring previously unreleased material.
“Including the previously unreleased versions of « La Chanson d’Hélène » performed by Romy Schneider and Michel Piccoli in Italian and German.
First ever LP reissue of this timeless masterpiece by Philippe Sarde, the most versatile and talented french film composer. Les choses de la vie, an outstanding score which offers both the wonderful « Chanson d'Hélène » and most of the musical features which appeared later in Philippe Sarde's musical career : Nostalgia, melancholy, experiment and sound discord.
Les choses de la vie is the film which confirms Sautet as a genuine author and Philippe Sarde as a rising composer.
This is also the start of a long partnership that spanned twenty-five years and eleven films.
Also Includes Stéphane Belmondo’s version of « la Chanson d’Hélène »”
