The Knight Strikes At Midnight


Director Philippe de Broca and composer Georges Delerue, almost 50 years later The King Of Hearts still my favourite film and soundtrack. The marches and carnival compositions with beautiful semitone changes that alternately make me laugh or feel embarrassed that my compositions are so inferior to Delerue.

The whole film has been uploaded here.

A very unexpected World War One story. Also the 2cnd film of amazing Montreal actress (and high wire artist) Geneviève Bujold.




  1. Agreed about both film and score. Did you see that the recent indy film Frances Ha used this score as well?
