Dan Levy’s Soundtrack to French Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Film VESPER Released
VESPER is a science fiction adventure drama (released in France as VESPER CHRONICLES). The film is a French/Belgium/Lithuania co-production, directed by Kristina Buožytė & Bruno Samper, and starring Raffiella Chapman (HOMEBOUND, INFINITE, HIS DARK MATERIALS, MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN), Eddie Marsan (THE PACT, RAY DONOVAN, FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW, DEADPOOL 2, ATOMIC BLONDE), Rosie McEwen (CLOSE TO ME, THE ALIENIST), and Richard Brake (31, KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, HANNIBAL RISING, ROOM). The movie is set in a bleak post-apocalyptic Earth after an ecological collapse; the rich have taken refuge in cities cut off from the world, called Citadels, while the rest live in dire conditions, like Vesper, a 13-year-old girl struggling to survive with her paralyzed Father and learning must use her wits, strength and bio-hacking abilities to fight for the future. One day, a Citadel ship crashes nearby, and Vesper finds a survivor, a young woman who will change her life.
The film is scored by Dan Levy, a French composer and actor, known for FOR MY COUNTRY(2022), LOVE, DEATH & ROBOTS (episode: The Tall Grass, 2021), and I LOST MY BODY (2019). In a review of the soundtrack, John Mansell of MovieMusic International described the score: “Levy has created a haunting and at times complex work, which effectively enhances the storyline and punctuates its numerous twists and turns… The richness of the core themes is stunning and filled with a wonderment and an aura and style that compels one to listen and go deeper into the music.” (read the full review here). The soundtrack is available digitally from Amazon, Apple Music, Amazon Digital (UK), and other sources.
Vesper debuted at the 2022 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on July 2, 2022, where it received positive acclaim. The film opened in French theatres on August 18, 2022, and then in the United States, Lithuania, and Turkey on September 30, 2022, and is set to be released in Germany and Singapore on October 6, 2022.
