Mychael Danna's Water
11-Dec-2005 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for Water, the final film in director Deepa Mehta’s trilogy on the elements, following Fire (1996) and Earth (1998). In pre-independent India, set against the backdrop of Mahatma Gandhi’s rise to power, eight-year old child-bride Chuyia hears of her husband’s death. Her father, following custom, exiles her to a widow’s ashram. Chuyia’s feisty presence starts to affect the lives of the other residents, in particular 20-year-old Kalyani, 35-year-old Shakuntala and an 80-year-old whose days are waning. Encouraged by Chuyia, Kalyani breaks tradition and falls for young upper-class Gandhian idealist Narayan. Even Chuyia is caught in the wind of change. The strikingly beautiful score was composed by Mychael Danna.
