Georges Delerue – Theme de Camille

Tune of the Week is this achingly gorgeous piece by Georges Delerue from Godard’s Le Mepris. It’s called Theme de Camille and is thus the music dedicated to Brigitte Bardot’s character in the movie. It’s a very famous bit of movie music (Scorsese re-used it in Casino) and you can hear why. Just a warning – the YouTube clip above contains lots of lovely footage from the film, but it does reveal certain SPOILERS if you’ve never seen it…… to see no spoilers watch this video here.
