Original Motion-Picture Soundtrack
Soundtrack composed entirely by a cloistered Carmelite nun, the
THÉRÈSE musical score features the talents of various Pacific Northwest musicians under the direction of conductor Vilem Sokol. This soundtrack weaves a beautiful melodic thread through the contemplative true story of THÉRÈSE, balancing between simple confidence and sensitivity, much like Saint Thérèse herself.
THÉRÈSE musical composer Sister Marie Thérèse O.C.D. combined her talents and experience as a composer and a professional cellist with her life in a Carmelite monastery. She offers the soundtrack an emotional depth and richness, which augments the interior nature of the film.
This is truely a wonderful and peaceful music to listen to and played it while painting my home.
“I saw Thérèse, and I think there was hardly a dry eye in the movie theater after the film was over. It was all presented with such a beautiful touch of sensitivity and humor. It’s a magnificent film. THÉRÈSE is destined to be a classic.” FATHER ANDREW APOSTOLI - Franciscan Friar of the Renewal, Author, and EWTN Host
“This film is a beautiful two-hour retreat from the world where you can soften your heart.You feel refreshed coming out of this movie.” MATTHEW PINTO – Ascension Press, Author, Co-Founder of Envoy and CatholicExchange.com
“There is a kind of color and gentleness which is not commonly present in movies, and it becomes something refreshing because it is distinctive. There is a quality about Thérèse that comes through as so attractive; the charm of innocence draws you in." FATHER MITCH PACWA – Author, EWTN Host, and Founder of Ignatius Productions
“From the very start of this beautiful film, lovingly made, and produced with unsparing effort to the highest industry standards in every department, Luke Films has pulled off a tremendous cinematic achievement.
The biggest reason Defilippis succeeds in capturing on film this "inner story" of a great modern saint is because he understands the subject well and tells her story with a spiritual, yet profoundly human approach.” ANTHONY RYAN - Director of Marketing, Ignatius Press
“I think this movie is going to be a catalyst for healing. Many people will see the little way of Saint Thérèse and they will see themselves through watching the movie. They will be able to take a good look at their own souls. I think it will be massive what the film will do.” MICHAEL ARSENAULT – Canadian Distributor of Religious Goods
“[THÉRÈSE] is a mirror of what’s in us. I am impressed with Luke Films’ vision and understanding of the importance of a Catholic voice within the entertainment industry…I encourage Catholics to support THÉRÈSE any way they can.” FRANCIS CARDINAL GEORGE, Archbishop of Chicago
“The best film on her inspiring life.” ARCHBISHOP JOHN P. FOLEY, President, Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Vatican
“A marvelous production revealing the spiritual and missionary message of the life of Saint Thérèse.” ARCHBISHOP MALCOLM RANJITH, President, Pontifical Mission Societies, Vatican
“I believe we underestimate the power of a film like Thérèse. This film can help in nations considering civil strife, in countries having terrible problems of poverty, in wealthy countries… Thérèse holds a profound message for my country…for everyone.” FATHER JOHN E. KOZAR, National Director, Pontifical Mission Societies, New York
“Thérèse is a masterpiece! Of all the films I have seen on Saint Thérèse, it is the best.” FATHER DONALD KINNEY, O.C.D., Chairman of the relics of Saint Thérèse in the United States
