Zaytoun | Cyril Morin
Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis directed this 2012 drama, starring Stephen Dorff, about an unlikely partnership between an Israeli fighter pilot and a young Palestinian refugee.
Cyril Morin’s score plays to the tragedy of the story, and the searing separation and loss that pervades it. An elegy for high, solo piano and soft strings is introduced in “Father’s Death,” and reemerges in “At the Border” and “Goodbye.” Strummed oud and ethnic violins bowed on their fringes carry the characters through Lebanon (“Between Two Worlds,” “Handcuff”), with more urgent, predatory percussion joining indigenous instrumentation for moments of pursuit (“Streets of Beirut,” “Hounded”).
