MovieScore Media latest documentary score, Heartbound, finds love in the most unlikely of places. The film follows acclaimed filmmaker Janus Metz and his anthropologist wife, Sine Plambech as they document a most unusual tradition in the small northern region of Jutland, Denmark. Here they find over 900 Thai women who are married to Danish men, a trend that started some 25 years ago when a former sex worker from Thailand married a Jutland native and has since helped lonely local men and impoverished women from her village find someone to marry and share life with.
“This score means a lot to me. In 2007, just when I started out composing music for film, I wrote the music for the two prequels of this feature documentary called Love on Delivery and Ticket to Paradise. Since then I have written a lot of music to different types of films. When Janus one day called me and asked me to write the music for the sequel on this story I just said yes! – To have the chance to ten years later, set the musical narrative for this emphatic and epic story, is something that I am really fortunate to be a part of. The music truly reflects all the different emotions that the characters go through in this epic journey of life. In another way it illustrates all that I am not able to express in words about this story.”
