Suite Française – Out Now

Suite Française is out now in UK Cinemas (soon followed by the rest of Europe), featuring original music by Rael Jones.

The soundtrack is now available on CD and iTunes.

The score is receiving a lot of attention, being played on BBC Radio 3, and mentioned in many of the reviews of the film:

“…a wonderful soundtrack written by Rael Jones” – Moviez Magazine

“in a story where music serves an integral narrative function, Rael Jones’s pretty, heavily worked score can justify its degree of ornamentation” – Variety

“The significance of music is obviously written into the film’s title, Suite Francaise being the soundtrack’s central piano piece. It connects the two main characters as a means of communication long before words do, and the way that Rael Jones has worked the piece into the soundtrack is impressive and atmospheric. Even in the most threatening moments, the soft piano sounds have a calming effect not only on Lucille but also on the audience that sympathises with her predicament.” – Filmwerk

“Visually, the film looks gorgeous and, when combined with the rich musical score of Rael Jones and Dibb’s deft direction, Suite Française emerges a winner.” – Times of Malta

“…the delicate, occasionally sweeping musical soundtrack from Rael Jones” – The People’s Movies

“cinematography from Eduard Grau and music by Rael Jones beautifully underscore this Spring must see.” – Westend Report

“It is also beautifully shot and, as you might expect, has a lovely score from Rael Jones.” – Double Skinny Macchiato
