Directed in 2008 by Pascal Laugier, Martyrs is without a doubt the most controversial french horror film of its decade. Beyond the symbolism of its subject or the hyperrealism of its special effects, the movie only represents the love between two friends, within a more and more dehumanized society.
The score composed by the Cortés brothers results from the vision of its director, sometimes cold and austere, sometimes organic and even melancholic. Thought more by its creators as a concept album, rather than a simple sound illustration, the soundtrack ends with the famous title Your Witness, with pop-Floydian accents. The song My Neighbourhood, by composer Goldmund, is also present for the first time.
