La fluidité des grands maitres. Le geste précis et toujours un petit air qui revient a la source, a la mémoire. Gabriel Yared est un de ces maitre de musique. Les compositeurs français ont mis en mémoire et en action quantité de films, qui sans les musiques, ritournelles, ne seraient pas ce qu’ils sont. Oui les compositeurs français sont passes des experts dans cette mémoire musicale. Oui Gabriel Yared est le parfait exemple d’une mélodie, d’un mouvement et d’une suite d’images. On pourrait croire a des orchestres Philharmonique, Symphonique, lourd, difficile a gérer ; Il n’en est rien. La simplicité, rien que la simplicité mais la précision et l’horizon devant soi. Le score de Paradise War, va s’inscrire dans les records de Gabriel Yared et certainement dans les records des sorties en salles de ce film riche et percutant. Image sublimes, histoires vraies et la conscience qui s’éveillent aujourd’hui avant demain et les lendemains.
Il y a une partition, il y a un vertige d’image… d’un grand film a une grande musique, une alchimie s’est créée. Un vent d’espoir et un temp de douleur qui vont se transformer en une formidable aventure mélodique.
Ecouter et regarder ensuite ou avant ou après… Mais n’oubliez pas vous avez un grand score d’un des plus grands compositeurs français : Gabriel Yared.

1984: Searching for an experience that goes deeper than the superficiality of modern civilization, Bruno Manser travels into the jungles of Borneo and finds it with the nomadic Penan tribe. It is an encounter that changes his life forever. When the existence of the Penan is threatened by relentless deforestation, Manser takes up the fight against logging with a courage and determination that makes him one of the most renowned and credible environmentalists of his times. Eventually, it costs in him everything. Based on a true story.

Gabriel Yared Note

When Niklaus sent me a short 15-minute teaser of his film, I was immediately struck by the beauty and majesty of the images, and inspired by the authenticity of the tribes and the lead actor. I dived into this project straight away, putting all my energy and consciousness into searching for the right music. I thought it was important for me not just to “collaborate”, but to bring all my skills to help defend the film, the tribes, and the forests. Niklaus made so much space for the music, and allowed me the freedom to express the spirit of the forests, and the emotions of the Penan through my composition.

Although we have almost lost these tribes and the forests, we have gained a truly remarkable film, which I hope will make audiences around the world understand and wake up to these important environmental issues. I feel honored to have been a part of this journey, and to have had the wonderful opportunity to write the most beautiful themes I could.
