Swedish composer Matti Bye’s new score to The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, Felix Herngren’s film adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling novel, is simply astonishing. Artfully blending jazz, classical, and folk music with elegant melodies, sinuous percussion and spare orchestration (horns, piano and strings) his dynamic score glides seamlessly between high comedy, aching tragedy and serious drama to beguiling effect – perfect for the historical encounters of Jonasson’s epic tale and accidental hero. From the martial strut of Red Square and the crazed polka of Djibouti to the mournful carnival of The End, Bye’s playful and reflexive virtuosity is all the more impressive for its sly humour and big heart. moviescoremedia.com
