One of the most talked-about films this spring was Paolo Sorrentino's followup to "Il Divo," the oddball roadtrip movie "This Must Be The Place." Starring a Robert Smith-channeling Sean Penn, the film is an odd one, a gothic holocaust dramedy of sorts about an aging rocker who goes to find the SS officer who tortured his estranged father, who recently passed away. Reviews were mixed, but curiousity abounded not only for the chance to see Penn do something quite out of step with his usual screen appearances, but also because of a score led by new tunes from David Byrne and Will Oldham. Well, while we wait for The Weinstein Company to release this movie, details on the soundtrack have arrived, though you'll have to import this one for now.

Duo Writing Original Music For Film, Will Also Feature Performance By ByrneItalian helmer Paolo Sorrentino made a name for himself at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival with his film "Il Divo" but he'll more than likely soon be better known worldwide for his upcoming music-centric revenge tale, "This Must Be The Place," starring Sean Penn and Frances MacDormand. The project won't just share a title of a song by New York New-Wavers Talking Heads though, as that band's lead singer David Byrne is going meta in scoring and writing original music for the film.
