Original score from the 2019 drama feature film directed by Julius Sevcík, starring Carice van Houten, Claes Bang and Hanna Alström, produced by In Film Praha and released by Vertical Entertainment (USA).
THE STORY: Liesel Landauer and her friend Hana are linked by a lifelong relationship and an exceptional house built by the architect Von Abt for Liesel and her husband Viktor in Czechoslovakia in the early 1930s.
THE SCORE: “In The Affair, the main tension is built between the timelessness of the main artifact: the house, a building with a personality of its own, and its ever changing inhabitants. The music needed a beating heart and a human soul. The first element was provided by the string orchestra, the second – by the sound of solo cello, played by my friend, the virtuoso Karol Marianowski. I allowed myself to be very melodious and passionate, shattering the coldness of the Glass House.” – Antoni Komasa-Łazarkiewicz
