The film also won 7 other awards at Mexico’s most prestigious film award show

The Gout brothers combine a churchil-lesque determination and a big smile in the face of adversity, with Everardo’s unique and artistic vision. This is ” victory at all costs”. Without a care about how long and hard the road can be, and his inability to accept nothing but the best, it all makes Days of Grace a very special piece of work.

Soundtrack description for Días de Gracia, by Everado Gout

In each period, there’s a different way of filming and a different music composer… 

The idea was for the viewer to realise that we were guiding him through three different stories, three periods of time, but in a subliminal way. These were not filmed in the same way. The composers were different. The format of the images changes. There are so many clues. They are there if the viewer wants to see them. If he doesn’t, then it doesn’t matter. He will understand everything at the end…

Who are the three composers?

For the 2002 period, I worked with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. I loved their work for The Proposition and The Assassination of Jesse James. They created music that brings together, in an incredible way, sounds, noises, an urban universe and animals that only they know how to create.

For 2006, I had the chance to meet Atticus Ross way before he won his Oscar for the Social Network score. He worked on the feeling of fear, something more primal or visceral. 

For 2010, I was able to collaborate with Shigeru Umebayashi, the composer who worked on one of my favourite films,In the Mood For Love. He’s a great man: he composed the softest, most sophisticated music out of the three. 

To bind it all together, we used three versions of the same song, the universally known Summertime, sung by three different women: Nina Simone, Janis Joplin and Scarlett Johansson, whose version is remixed by Tim Goldsworthy, Euan Dickinson and Robert del Naja from Massive Attack.
