From the Manufacturer

New adaptation of the famous Gothic novel by Matthew G. Lewis, written in 1796, about the tortuous life of the friar Ambrosio during the times of the Spanish Inquisition. This was the dream project of the Spanish director Luis Buñuel for many years, who wrote the screenplay for the famous version filmed in 1972 by Ado Kyrou, starring Franco Nero and Nathalie Delon, with a wonderful score by Piero Piccioni (whose CD premiere has been announced by Digitmovies label for the month of September).

For this new version, a French-Spanish coproduction, directed by Dominik Moll, and starring Vincent Cassel, the music has been created by Alberto Iglesias (The Constant Gardener, The Kite Runner, Che, Bad Education, All About My Mother, Volver, Even the Rain) who gets a score of deep psychological complexion, deeply religious, full emotional, with a haunting main theme dark chords based, marking the descent into the underworld of Ambrosio character. Composed, orchestrated and conducted by Alberto Iglesias, and performed by The London Session Orchestra and Metro Voices.
