"Morvern Catlar Is the latest film from Lynne Ramsay, one of the industry's strongest new voices of the past five years. The director of the shorts Small Deaths and Gasman, (both of which won the Cannes Prix du Jury) and Ratcatcher which on release was universally lauded as a highly accomplished debut film, she has defined herself as a idiosyncratic talent and drawn comparisons with luminaries such as Klesiowskl and Tarkovaky for her intuitive direction and singular unpretentious style. An adaptation of Alan Warner's novel of the same name, Morvern Callar is a story of a woman's personal journey from a prosaic life on the remote Scotish coast, to self-abandonment on the costa del Clubland, and re-invention in the empty Spanish sierras. The rich and intriguing story, focused through the lead actress Samantha Morton's absorbing portrait of the eponymous heroine, Lynne's oblique perspective on the everyday and Warp's complimentary soundtrack, becomes an intense sensory experience. More than a soundtrack, this selection is integral to the film, actually playing a part in the story; the tape her boyfriend left her before committing suicide. And a very particular score is needed for an introspective film such as this, requiring an acute choice of tracks to map the emotionally driven plot and expose the interior tangle that guides Morvern through her odyssey." Artists include: Can, Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Sterolab, The Velvet Underground, Broadcast, Gamelan Drumming, Holgar Czukay, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, and Ween.
