The Odyssey was commissioned especially for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Hackney-born Asif Kapadia (Senna) combines epic aerial images with the voices of Londoners to chart the city's turbulent yet inspiring journey from winning the bid in 2005 to the 2012 Olympics.
“When I was first asked by Film4 and LOCOG to direct a film for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in London,” said Kapadia, “I did not hesitate in contacting Antonio Pinto to create the score. I had such a fantastic experience collaborating with Antonio on the soundtrack for Senna, I could not wait to work with him again. I love his enthusiasm, energy and passion. Within a day or two of our initial conversation Antonio came back with three fantastic and highly original cues which form the heart of The Odyssey's score. One of my favourite parts of the entire filmmaking process is the moment when the images and the score first start to work together, when the music elevates the film to another level, for me this is something magical.”
4/5 it's riveting, yet short... just as I got into it, it was over... hit the start over!
