The story of the greatest treasure hunt in history directed by and starring George Clooney, as well as Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin. Original Motion Picture Soundtrack feat. a score by Golden Globe & Grammy Award winner Alexandre Desplat. Synopsis: Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, Monuments Men is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements. About the Music: The soundtrack is composed by Golden Globe and Grammy Award winning French composer Alexandre Desplat, who burst onto the Hollywood scene in 2003 with his evocative score to Girl With the Pearl Earring. From this point on he contributed the soundtracks to a rich collection of highly successful movies such as Syriana, Golden Compass, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 1&2) and The King’s Speech. Desplat's Harry Potter soundtracks were released on Sony Classical in 2009 and sold 64,000 units (Part II) and 61,000 units (Part I) and were a huge success. ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ is an cappella version of the famous Christmas carol performed by Nora Segal and written by Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin.
