Varèse Sarabande has released The Face Of Love soundtrack
Featuring Original Music By Marcelo Zarvos
Varèse Sarabande Records has released The Face Of Love - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on March 11th and via disc-on-demand later in March. The soundtrack features the original score composed by Marcelo Zarvos.
“Arie [Posin, director] wanted a timeless feel to the score,” described Zarvos. “We used an orchestra with very strong thematic material that would hit the emotional, romantic and suspenseful elements of the story.”
Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets a man who seems his exact duplicate. Not only does this stranger possess the same deeply lined face and startling blue eyes, he also shares Garrett's kindness, humor, and passion for art. And yet he is a stranger. Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelgänger, but she can't bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she can't resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isn't a question of if the truth will come out, but when. Arie Posin directs this emotionally thorny drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward.
“The use of music is quite sophisticated and had to reflect the deep feeling of loss that Annette Bening's character feels, as well the dangerous psychological game she is playing,” described Zarvos. “The goal of the music was to keep us guessing to the very end what was real or imaginary.”
Brazilian-born Marcelo Zarvos burst onto the indie film landscape in the 2000s with his scores for KISSING JESSICA STEIN and THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR. His trademark is a seamless blend of classical, orchestral, rock, electronic and various ethnic and folk elements, which together create a uniquely affecting and emotionally charged music. Zarvos was named one of the 25 New Faces of Indie Film in 2004 by FilmMaker Magazine.
