French movie music maestro Alexandre Desplat is one of the film industry's most prolific and successful composers. Here we recommend his essential film scores.
For this psychological drama on grief and loss, starring Nicole Kidman, Desplat unsettles us with a mix of traditional forms - particularly waltzes - and familiar horror movie sounds. At once startling and smooth, its use in the film is masterly, an uncomfortable accompaniment. Listen with the lights off!
