MovieScore Media: How to Fight in Six Inch Heels - Christopher Wong

MovieScore Media |
Co-inciding with Wave Releasing’s US theatrical launch of the film on March 27, 2015, MovieScore Media once again samples an intriguing offering of the international cinema scene: the Vietnamese romantic comedy How to Fight in Six Inch Heels with music by Christopher Wong, a composer whose scores for Journey from the Fall and The Rebel were previously released  by the label.

The film follows the adventures of Anne (Kathy Uyen), a nervous fashion designer from NYC who thinks that her fiancé in Vietnam may be cheating on her with a supermodel. After going through a drastic makeover to infiltrate the Saigon scene, Anne forms a true bond with three of the supermodels who turn out to have a much harder life than what all the glamor and success may lead us to believe. After winning a Special Jury Prize at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, How to Fight in Six Inch Heels  receives its US theatrical release on March 27, 2015 by Wave Releasing.

The quirky and empowering symphonic/pop hybrid score comes courtesy of composer Christopher Wong who explains the challenges of scoring the latest entry of Vietnamese genre cinema. "On the surface, How to Fight in Six Inch Heels looks like a romantic comedy, but at heart it’s really a story of sisterhood, about girls becoming friends, then enemies, then back to friends again. The music had to be charming, witty, cute, and endearing all at once. Since I tend towards composing in the vein of melancholic nostalgia, this film presented a welcome change of pace which I hope will be a delightful surprise to the listeners as well.”

Composer Christopher Wong has established the go-to composer for the rising generation of Asian American directors. Christopher’s interest in film music began late in college when he was selected by the music department to study privately under Jerry Goldsmith. His first major credit was Journey from the Fall, the debut feature from director Ham Tran - the film received a standing ovation at the Sundance Film Festival, while the score earned a nomination from the International Film Music Critics Association for Best New Composer of 2007. Journey from the Fall is also available from MovieScore Media and so is The Rebel, Christopher’s score for a historical drama set in 1920 French Indochina.
