Perfect Sense | Max Richter
Directed by David Mackenzie and shot in Glasgow, Perfect Sense(originally titled The Last Word) is a science fiction drama in a similar vein to Children of Men, where a mysterious epidemic slowly robs the world populace of their sensory perceptions. Starring Trainspotting alums Ewan McGregor and Ewen Bremner, Eva Green, and Connie Nielsen, the story focuses on a new couple who have just fallen in love as the epidemic causes their world to slowly slip away.
Award-winning British composer Max Richter who gained acclaim for his work on Waltz with Bashir, and whose work appears in the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, creates a sonic dreamscape that washes over the listener like a wave of ambient melancholy. Driven by strings and piano, “Luminous” is a slowly rising crescendo of longing and hope.
