Françoise Nyssen, Minister of Culture, sends her warmest congratulations to Alexandre Desplat, Oscar for the best original music for Form of water of Guillermo del Toro.

This prestigious award recognizes the continued excellence of one of our most talented film composers, three years after his first Oscar for The Grand Budapest Hotel. His work with filmmakers around the world contributes to France’s influence.

With Form of water, Alexandre Desplat delivers a dazzling score, both romantic and fantastic, that transcribes the beauty of the emerging love between the characters played by Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones. Like the film, his music praises diversity.
