Continuing our exciting relationship with Swedish composer Johan Söderqvist (Let the Right One In), we are proud to release his brilliant and unique score for the critically acclaimed drama In a Better World.
This is Johan’s eighth film together with Danish auteur Susanne Bier, and while the music certainly has the same touch of intimacy and emotional depth as the previous Bier/Söderqvist collaborations (such as Brother and After the Wedding), In a Better World is also highly original in its use of instrumental colors.
Carrying the tone in the score is the African instrument Mbira as well as some heartbreakingly beautiful vocal solos – everything elegantly sweeped in Söderqvist’s very personal mix of warm string writing and shimmering electronics. In a Better Worldcould very well be both Susanne Bier’s and Johan Söderqvist’s most impressive works to date. Not to be missed!
