“I never thought that music would be my destiny”. And yet, nearly two years after his death, Ennio Morricone continues to make an impression. A stunning destiny honored in Ennio, a documentary by Oscar-winning director Giuseppe Tornatore. Completed after the composer’s death, the film was shown at the Venice Film Festival last year. It celebrates, in music, the legacy of this virtuoso of sound. From the conservatory to the Oscar for best film music in 2016 for the soundtrack of Tarantino’s Eight Bastards, this documentary traces the itinerary of a genius of the Twentieth century. Over the course of archive images and interviews, the portrait of a composer emerges, whose talent will have marked all those who met him, from Hans Zimmer to Clint Eastwood via Carlo Verdone and Joan Baez. A film celebrating the work by Ennio Morricone, not to be missed: in theaters on July 6th.
