Oscar-nominated for “Salt of the Earth,” Wim Wenders returns to 3D for his long-awaited redemption drama “Every Thing Will Be Fine,” starring James Franco as a writer’s 12-year-long emotional wrestle with a tragic hit-and-run he caused.
In the video below, Wenders and composer Alexandre Desplat (up for two Academy Awards this year) talk scoring the film—only a week before its Berlinale premiere! Is this some kind of record? After Desplat recorded with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in early February, Wenders rushed off to Oslo for cutting and mixing.
Wenders says he wanted a “classic,” string-based orchestral score and the snippets heard, below, are lovely as any Desplat arrangement.
“Every Thing Will Be Fine” co-stars Rachel McAdams and Charlotte Gainsbourg. As previously announced, Wenders will also be receiving an honorary Golden Bear in Berlin, with 10 of his films set to screen, including 1984 Palme d’Or winner “Paris, Texas” and “The Salt of the Earth.”
