"Set in 1968's Swinging London, Escalation, was the debut film of then 25-year-old director Roberto Faenza. True to his youth, Faenza's dark comedy dealt with the war being waged between armies of bourgeois parents and their hippy offspring. The tale of Luca, the ne'er-do-well son of a wealthy Italian industrialist, and his father's attempt to use any means necessary to bring him home to Italy and make him take his rightful place at the helm of the family empire (even if it means destroying him). Ennio Morricone's unique ability to use music to express the inner psyche of his films' protagonists is what makes his scores so unique. Here Morricone teams up with fellow composer Bruno Nicolai and the vocalizations of Alessandro Alessandroni's 'Cantori Moderni', making this one of his less minimal soundtracks, as both an orchestra and a choir is used. In 1968 Morricone was at the height of his career, scoring not only Sergio Leone's classic Once Upon a Time in the West, but also, unbelievably, more than 20 other films!
