Saturday Night at the Movies - Saturday 23 May 2015, 5pm

To mark the Eurovision Song Contest taking place this evening, Andrew Collins is guiding us through a musical tour of European film scores.

Tonight the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is being held in Vienna, only the second time in its history that the contest has been held in Austria. 

So, with that in mind, Andrew Collins showcases some of the best music to come out of European cinema.

From France, there's Yann Tiersen’s evocative score to Amélie. Italy's offering is Cinema Paradiso, while Austria is represented by Tharaud’s Amour. We'll even follow Eurovision's lead and nip over to that European outpost, Australia – which is making its debut in the Contest this year.
