This is a documentary and celebration of motion picture composer Georges Delerue, who composed music for more than 200 films over a 40-year career span. Delerue worked for some of the finest French New Wave and Hollywood cinema directors and composed some haunting music for such classic films as Hiroshima Mon Amour, Jules et Jim, The Last Metro, Steel Magnolias, Salvador, and Platoon. This documentary includes interviews with Georges Delerue, directors Ken Russell and Oliver Stone, archival footage of Delerue's life, and clips from the films Delerue scored, including Shoot the Piano Player, Women in Love, Two English Girls, and The Story of Adele H. ~ Forrest Spencer, Rovi
George Delerue highlights the career of a quintessential Frenchman whose music shaped many of the most striking films of the French New Wave, Resnais's Hiroshima Mon Amour to Truffaut's Jules and Jim among them.
