Sound of Cinema: Tous Les matins du monde

Lucy Skeaping explores the Gerard Depardieu film Tous Les matins du monde and considers some of the music featured in it, written by 17th/18th composer Marin Marais.

The revered French actor Gérard Depardieu is frequently in the news these days and not always for his acting. In the early 1990s Depardieu gave a brilliantly nuanced performance as the 17th/18th-century composer and viol player Marin Marais. The acclaimed film "Tous les matins du monde" was one of the few movies to celebrate and popularise early music. Lucie Skeaping remembers the film and considers some of the music.
