IN LOVE & WAR

Feature Film (Denmark/Germany/Czech Republic, 2018)

I’m very happy and excited to be writing the score for the Danish feature film I Krig & Kærlighed / In Love & War. It’s a film set in World War I era in southern Denmark. The story follows Danish man Esben who flees from World War I, forced to abandon his wife and children in order to save his own life. Hiding close to his home, he watches as the German officer Gerhard moves in and replaces his role as the man of the house. Esben is forced to decide whether or not to keep hiding or to stand up for what he believes in, even if it costs him his life.

It is one of the highest budgeted Danish movies of all time and I’m extremely proud to be part of it.

The orchestral score has been recorded on September 4th and 5th in Smecky Studios, Prague with the FILMharmonic Orchestra. Currently, we’re mixing it and I’m very excited for the final results. The score has been recorded with a large string orchestra, piano and harp plus an additional String Quartet on top. Parts of the score had an additional large brass section of eight Horns, 4 Trombones and a Tuba. The movie release is set for November 15th.

Below are several videos that give you a first look at the movie as well as show some excerpts of the score.
