Press Release from Music Box
World Premiere CD Release. Expanded edition. 50 minutes of music, including 4 previously unreleased tracks.
In collaboration with Hippocampus and Kazak Productions, Music Box Records presents for the first time on CD the collaboration between French director Teddy Lussi-Modeste and composer Rob (Maniac, Horns, The Bureau): Le Prix du succès (The Price of Success, 2017) and Jimmy Rivière (2011).
Co-written by Rebecca Zlotowski (Planetarium), Le Prix du succès tells the story of a comedian's relationship with his family who crumbles when he reaches a level of success in his career. Rob composed a beautiful and lyrical score with intimate and emotional piano writing. The film stars Tahar Rahim, Roschdy Zem, Maïwenn and Grégoire Colin.
Also co-written by Rebecca Zlotowski, Jimmy Rivière tells the story of a young gypsy who converts to Pentecostalism under pressure from his community and gives up his two passions: Thai boxing and his girlfriend Sonia. Rob composed a lyrical and melancholic score, with his own pop and electronic signature. The film stars Guillaume Gouix, Béatrice Dalle, Hafsia Herzi and Serge Riaboukine.
This present edition includes 4 bonus tracks from Le Prix du succès which did not appear on previous digital and vinyl releases.
