Il Vero E Il Falso


2010 release. Digitmovies releases for the very first time complete and in full stereo the original soundtrack by Giorgio Gaslini for the movie Il Vero E Il Falso ("The True And The False") directed in 1972 by Eriprando Visconti. In the city of Latina, a young Yugoslavian girl with questionable morals called Norma Zejzler lives and works. She is the mistress of Claudio Santini, who is married to the young teacher Luisa, who in turn well knows about the love relationship of her husband. One day the charred body of a woman is found in Norma's house, possibly it is even Norma herself. Luisa is incriminated (the motive is jealousy) by the district attorney Turrisi as being guilty of the murder. Although some elements have not been cleared up, the woman is sentenced to ten years in prison. Then she leaves the prison three years earlier because of good behavior. She is received by the lawyer Marco Manin who during the past trial was the assistant of the attorney for the defense. After many years lawyer Manin is still puzzled about the final verdict, and between him and the woman a love story begins. Later on, it is discovered that Norma is still alive and is now living together with Claudio. This time Luisa does really kill Norma, and after her arrest lawyer Manin, who now defends Luisa at the trial, discovers that the woman had indeed been only sentenced because of the carelessness of the district attorney Turrisi. The truth comes to light: Claudio Santini together with his mistress had killed and burned another girl who had to pass off herself as Norma. At the end Manin succeeds to incriminate Santini and to clear up the circumstances, but Luisa commits suicide when listening to the verdict. Giorgio Gaslini has written a short, but effective score with mysterious and dramatic overtones. For the character of Luisa and her tormented story Gaslini has written a romantic and sad theme with classical flavor for guitar and orchestra. It gets reprised for solo guitar and can also be heard in the final suite. The macabre side of the story which is all about a murder and the search for the truth is rendered by passages of dissonant music where the "Luisa" theme comes back, by the long and ghostly experimental piece "Evanescenze". Includes four unreleased tracks.
