Comforting Skin soundtrack release
A week ago was the sold-out premiere of Comforting Skin at the Vancouver International Film Festival. After the film was over, during the Q&A with the filmmakers a woman raised her hand and said this:
” I am not part of the film industry, I am jut someone in the audience and I don’t have a question. I just wanted to say that I can still feel the music (as she put her hand to her chest). It was amazing.”
I would like to thank this anonymous woman for this comment. Music in a film is so often overlooked and forgotten, so a comment like this… well… I can still feel it in my chest a week after.
And thanks to director and writer Derek Franson for giving so much room in his film for the music to be a part of the story, allowing it to represent the character’s inner-life and struggle. And for the wonderful actors, especially Victoria Bidwell’s amazingly truthful performance.
No, this is not an Oscar speech, but it is important to bring attention to the fact that not all directors value music as Derek did, and not all films and performances inspire as this one did.
