Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the movie Trishna from 2011, directed by Michael Winterbottom. The movie is loosely based on the famous novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy which was already filmed in the late 70s by Roman Polanski. Winterbottom decides to let the story take place in India where a working class girl falls in love with a businessman. Although they have mutual feelings, it seems impossible to pursue their happiness due to their different traditions and upbringings. Their struggle is put into notes by Shigeru Umebayashi (2046, House of Flying Daggers) who delivers probably the saddest music of his outstanding career.
