Les anges se penchent, parfois

Ludovic Lang

Watch the trailer
More than just a portrait, this documentary film is a deep dive into the mental geography and musical universe of French composer Jacques Lenot. Through encounters with his players, we discover the composer’s atypical journey, his inspirations, his musical obsessions, the evolution of his writing, and his lucid, lyrical outlook on his own work and on the world. Visiting places that have inspired the composer, and set against the rich backdrop of his music, the documentary traces the different periods of his creation to uncover its origin. From the Charente-Maritime to Chicago, via Tunis, Kiev, Rome, and Berlin, each location and each encounter sheds new light on an oeuvre at once demanding and poetic. Creativity is nurtured by musical and literary insights at the turning-points of the composer’s life.
