Program Info:
Alan Silvestri - Back to the Future

Back to the future directed by Robert Zemeckis
[Back to the Future] United States, 1985, color, VOST / with Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover

After having been the cult film of young people of the eighties, Back to the Future has become that of their geek children. Alan Silvestri's score also makes it a great musical moment. Will you be accompanying the Orchestre national de Lyon for a little DeLorean tour?

"You have to think big in life!" , urges us Doc, the mad scientist by whom everything happens. "Even if it means travelling through time behind the wheel of a car, you might as well choose one that has the mouth!" The soundtrack starts from the same principle: even if it means composing a theme, as much as it is the grandiose fanfare signed by Alan Silvestri; and even if it means inventing rock, as much as it is Johnny B. Goode , two years before the actual birth of Chuck Berry's hit (which, suddenly, turns into a vulgar plagiarist of Marty McFly, the hero of the film). The actors' haircuts have aged a bit, but the humour, the rhythm, the whimsy of Robert Zemeckis (who also collaborated with Silvestri for 'Romancing the stone', ' Who Framed Roger Rabbit' or Forrest Gump ) haven't aged a bit.
