Patrick Doyle is continuing his musical relationship with director Regis Wargnier for the 2007 thriller Pars Vite Et Reviens Tard as we continue Patrick Doyle month. Something troubling is happening in a modern-day Parisian town. Is it doomsday? Musically it certainly sounds like it. I’m not sure I’ve heard Doyle this dark before, it is literally depressing stuff. I happen to enjoy some depressing music so this one peaks my interest, but rather than feed my troublesome addiction it sort of lingers between the good and the great.
Perhaps the most up-beat this score gets is the opening cue ‘Camille’ and again in ‘Death Approaches’ plus a few others. The piano really sticks out like a sore thumb in the mids of all this bassy and gloomy sequences. It’s exciting and sexy and yet, I can’t give it the 5 star treatment. This is a score I would like to explore more, because I believe that there’s more inside these dark and somber tracks. Until then, I’ll just say that I’m yet to be convinced.
