Based on the lives of 17th century French composer Sainte Colombe and his protégé Marin Marais, the film stars Academy Award® nominee Gérard Depardieu (Best Actor – Cyrano de Bergerac) and includes a classical soundtrack performed by Jordi Savall,

R E V I E W S

"Taking his cue from his subject -- a Baroque composer and violist da gamba known only for his reticence and the mournful beauty of his music -- the French film maker Alain Corneau has fashioned a reserved and elegant portrait colored by dark, romantic longing. Where the film embroiders the sketchy biography of the 17th-century musician called Monsieur de Sainte Colombe (even his first name is unknown, as are the dates of his birth and death), it remains utterly true to the spirit of his work. Music is so effectively used, and so central to the film, that "Tous les Matins du Monde," a big hit in France and a winner of seven French Cesars...has since prompted its own Baroque music revival." -- Janet Maslin, NEW YORK TIMES
