Winner of 7 Cesar Awards in France, Tous les Matins du Monde (All the Mornings of the World) tells the story of 17th-century baroque composer and cellist Monsieur de Saint Colombe.  After the death of his wife, Saint Colombe rejects the outside world in order to raise his two daughters.  He is vehemently opposed to performing in public until he is swayed by his young protégé, Marin Marais (played by Gerard Depardieu). The soundtrack features music by Saint Colombe, Marais, Lully, and Couperin
