The Cesars

Before Coulais became a sought-after composer in the Hollywood world, he worked — and conquered — the French film scoring industry. In the ‘80s and into the ‘90s, Coulais primarily worked in television, scoring several big historical epic dramas. In 1996, he scored a nature documentary, Microcosmos. The film was a huge hit, and along with the breathtaking macro-cinematography, Coulais’s music was center stage, animating and adding emotion to the movie’s insect encounters. He won a Cesar — France’s equivalent of the Oscar – for his score. Two more Cesars followed, for the dramas Himalaya, l’enfance d’un chef, and Les Choristes. And, for the latter film, Coulais’s work even traveled overseas to garner his Oscar nomination for “Best Original Song.”
