Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench
A full-fledged song-and-dance, tap-and-jazz musical, Damien Chazelle’s GUY AND MADELINE ON A PARK BENCH boldly recasts the 1940s MGM musical tradition in a gritty, verite style, resulting in an exuberant celebration of romance and music and one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year of its initial release. Guy and Madeline have been dating for three months but the excitement of first love has faded. When another woman catches Guy’s eye, sparks fly, spelling the end of Guy and Madeline’s romance. But when things don’t work out quite as planned, Guy must decide whether to try to win Madeline back (even if it may be too late). Their story unfolds in a world of jazz and tap, featuring original music composed by Justin Hurwitz and recorded by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra.
