“A Most Wanted Man” could probably also be a good title for Herbert Grönemeyer himself. Being still highly productive and engagned within the arts, Herbert is one of the most prolific musicians known in the german-speaking area. Having released various albums in english, Herbert also gained acknowledgement on a world wide scale.
The latest release on Grönland is the soundtrack “A Most Wanted Man”, directed by legendary Anton Corbijn, and has been made public the 19th of September 2014.
Regisseur Anton Corbijn stating about the soundtrack:
“I love film scores so it was a big step for me to work on my first one. It was for ‘The American’ and asked my friend Herbert Grönemeyer to work on this, having heard over the years his melodic piano skills at home, purely instrumental and often so different than the music he is so well known for. It worked out magically wonderful so when the next film ‘A Most Wanted Man’ came around I went knocking on his door again and he once more delivered a work of intensity and beauty, helping the film to reach us more emotionally charged than I ever had imagined. Needless to say I am proud of the work we do together and delighted that the soundtrack is also available as a separate item.”
Short-info for the movie:
When a half-chechen, half-russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: As the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?
Based on John le Carré’s novel ‘A most wanted man’ is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.
