Ludovic Bourse's The Artist
4-Dec-2011 - Sony Music has released the original soundtrack for The Artist, specially composed for director Michel Hazanavicius’ acclaimed tribute to a bygone era in Hollywood. Set in 1927, this film is the story of a love affair between George Valentin, a superstar of silent movies (Jean Dujardin in a role that earned him the Best Actor award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival) and the young extra Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo). With the arrival of sound in the movies, the end of George’s career is in sight, while Peppy is destined for stardom. The Artist has delighted lovers of classic silent cinema thanks to superb black-and-white photography – and also due to the quality of the music composed by Ludovic Bourse. Available as a CD+DVD including a documentary, trailers and images of the film with a 12-page illustrated libretto. Given the outstanding role that the music plays in The Artist, this is one of those films where no-one who loved it in the cinema will want to be without the soundtrack recording. In Ludovic Bource’s words: “It’s a tribute, a declaration of love to the great composers of great Hollywood films.” 
The score is available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany
