À La Folie... Pas Du Tout Et Autres Musiques Pour L'écran De Jérôme Coullet.
Eleven years after the release of À La Folie…Pas Du Tout (He Loves Me…He Loves Me Not), written and directed by Laetitia Colombani, and produced by Charles Gassot, its fabulous music soundtrack finally has been released by Disques Cinémusique. The score by Jérôme Coullet highlights the obsessive nature of Angélique, a student in fine arts who is madly in love with a seductive cardiologist. The main theme held on strings and piano reflects a romantic fervor and an entrancing dramatic mood. As the plot progresses and the viewer is confronted with the pathological nature of Angélique’s passion, this main theme gains a dark and tragic dimension.
From previous scores by Jérôme Coullet, his contributions for two movies directed by Laurent Bouhnik have been selected: an outstanding suite for strings from 1999 Madeleine and two vocal pieces from Select Hotel, which express in both an intense and an offbeat way the world of a group of dropouts. To complete the program there are two compositions by Coullet for institutional short features, an alternative field of creation in which he has made a name. This limited edition of 500 copies licensed from TF1 has a 12-page color booklet.
Le Music De Jorge Arriagada Pour Les Films De Philippe Le Guay.
The Franco-Chilean composer Jorge Arriagada wrote the music for about 140 movies, including all the production by his prolific countryman Raoul Ruiz (1941-2011). He has also collaborated with filmmakers Jean-Pierre Mocky, Benoît Jacquot, Jacques Richard, Barbet Schroeder and Philippe Le Guay, whose soundtracks from three movies make their premiere on this CD, Les Musiques De Jorge Arriagada Pour Les Films De Philippe Le Guay.

Based on real historical facts, Les Deux Fragonard tells off the conflict between two members of the same family in the eighteenth century, who are accomplished artists in their respective fields: Jean-Honoré Fragonard, a successful painter and ladies’ man, and his cousin Cyprien, an anatomist attracted to death and fascinated by the mechanics of the human body, which he likes to dissect using stolen corpses.

Philippe Le Guay called again on Arrigada in 2010 for the delicious social comedy, Les Femmes Du 6e étage (The Women on the Sixth Floor), starring Fabrice Luchini and Sandrine Kiberlain playing a bourgeois couple in 1960s Paris whose life is turned upside down by the group of Spanish maids living in their building. Arriagada delivers a colorful, warm and witty score that contributes much to the success of the film.
The original music of the most recent film by Le Guay, Alceste à Bicyclette completes the CD. This comedy brings back a Luchini perfectly at ease in the role of a bitter actor who is persuaded by a friend to return to the stage to play in The Misanthrope by Molière. Arriagada’s short contribution brings dynamism and emotion to this dialog-rich film. The limited edition of 500 includes a fully bilingual 12-page color booklet.
