Number: MBR003

Composed by: Georges Delerue

Limited Edition of 1000 copies.

LE BON PLAISIR, directed by Francis Girod in 1984 and based on Françoise Giroud's eponymous novel, deals with the efforts of a president of the French Republic (played by Jean-Louis Trintignant) informed after a number of years of the existence of a son born from an extramarital relationship with Claire, a former mistress (played by Catherine Deneuve) and using the secret services to cover up any kind of proof likely to tarnish his reputation.

For this movie, Georges Delerue's music is far more complex than it could appear. The score is elaborated around four different musical tones, rendering the structure of the film plot : the beginning of the story which establishes a context of power with some pastiches of official musics; the police enquiry concerning the stolen letter naturally characterized by more mysterious themes; scenes of tenderness between Claire and her son Mike and the president; and then the very intensely dramatic conclusion of the film.

40 minutes of music, featuring 15 minutes of previously unreleased music. New sequencing. 8-page CD booklet with liner notes by Frédéric Gimello-Mesplomb.
