The second release by Transversales, a French label based in Paris founded by Sebastien Rosat and Jonathan Fitoussi, is the first ever LP reissue of Les Choses De La Vie, originally released in 1970, the timeless masterpiece by the most versatile and talented French film composer, Philippe Sarde. Les Choses De La Vie, an outstanding score which offers both the wonderful "Chanson D'hélène" and most of the musical features which appeared later in Philippe Sarde's musical career: nostalgia, melancholy, experiment, and sound discord. Les Choses De La Vie is the film which confirms Sautet as a genuine author and Philippe Sarde as a rising composer. This is also the start of a long partnership that spanned twenty-five years and eleven films. This reissue includes the previously unreleased versions of "La Chanson D'hélène" performed by Romy Schneider and Michel Piccoli in Italian and German. Also includes Stéphane Belmondo's version of "La Chanson D'hélène". Remastered from the original master tapes; Includes exclusive liner notes.
