Editorial Reviews

Tamara Drewe is a joyful but occasionally dark comedy based on Posy Simmond's much loved graphic novel which was inspired by Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd. Alexandre Desplat is one of the foremost film composers working today. After composing the music for over 50 European films he made his mark in Hollywood with Girl With A Pearl Earring and followed that success with three Academy Award nominations for The Queen, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Fantastic Mr. Fox.

By J. Lovins HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on October 15, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Silva Screen is on a roll with another great score release "TAMARA DREWE" (2010) [Soundtrack] --- Alexandre Michel Gérard Desplat is a French film composer --- He has been nominated for three Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe for "The Painted Veil" --- He has also been nominated for four BAFTA awards and one Grammy Award. --- Was nominated for Film Composer of the Year by the International Film Music Critics Association for three consecutive years in 2007, 2008 and 2009 --- He won the award in 2007.

This film score is completely melodic with passages of pure genius, I think this is a beautiful score --- The music is full, complex and evocative in a musicality way that sinks in immediately --- I'd recommend this to someone looking for instrumental music which doesn't sound like the ho drums of a complete electronic theme but with real instrumentation.

Loved the movie, loved the music. But when I went to buy "Where are You Now?" from Amazon, it was the wrong song. Instead of being by the band Swipe from the movie, it was a piece from the score. So keep that in mind if searching for that one specific song. Otherwise it's great!!

This Alexandre Desplat soundtrack is a nice addition to an all around enjoyable film, but the real Easter Egg are the songs at the end from the movie's fictitious band, Swipe, and its leader/writer/drummer, Ben Sergeant. Mr. Sergeant's real-life alter ego is the sublime actor, Dominic Cooper. Cooper knows his way around a song or two, having sung "Lay All Your Love on Me" on screen as part of Mamma Mia! The Movie. In Tamara Drewe, Cooper has the rock star persona down cold: perma-sneer, Gemma Arterton on his arm (doesn't get better than that), yellow Porsche, drumming endlessly beneath his own portrait at his cool condo. He's even got a Flock of Seagulls starter-kit hairstyle going on.

If you've seen the movie, you know that the songs his 'band' sings are, well, surprisingly good! "This is a Low" from the soundtrack (it's the one that starts "This is a call for a domestic dispute...") is very catchy. As is the song that Cooper himself adds at the end of the movie called "Jailbait Jody." It plays through the latter-half of the credits. Definitely check it out. I enjoyed it a lot.

One of the pivotal scenes in the movie is that one where Swipe "breaks up" on-stage. I remember thinking, wow, they really got a big crowd for such a small movie. That's because the filmmakers did a little guerrilla thing putting the band on-stage at a real festival called End of the Road ('EOTR'). Reading some forums I see that not everyone caught what was going on. These folks were no doubt stunned when Cooper emerged from behind the drums to start whaling away at his bandmate! Now that's some inspired filmmaking.
