Ludovico Einaudi has several tracks and new arrangements included in the soundtrack to the box-office hit French film, Intouchables [The Untouchables]. The film traces the true-life friendship between a rich handicapped white man and his black, ex-con caregiver. The film has been a monster success - both in France and internationally - grossing close to $370 million worldwide, making it the most successful French-language film of all time. In the United States, Intouchables, released by The Weinstein Company, has earned $11.6 million after more than 100 days in release, making it the top grossing foreign language film in the U.S. so far this year.
In September 2012, it was announced that Intouchables had been selected as the French entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar for the 85th Academy Awards.

ABOUT LUDOVICO EINAUDI...
His phenomenal CD sales and ability to sell out major concert halls worldwide are confirmation that Einaudi is one of classical music's success stories of recent years. After studying at the Conservatory in Milan, and subsequently with Berio, he spent several years composing in traditional forms. In the mid-1980s, he began to search for a more personal expression in a series of works for dance and multimedia, and later for piano. His music is ambient, meditative and often introspective, drawing on minimalism, world music and contemporary pop. He has made a significant impact in the film world, with four international awards to his name.
