MovieScore Media joins the holiday celebrations with Kristian Eidnes Andersen & Nicklas Schmidt’s yuletide score for the Deluca Film’s family movie Julemandens datter (All I Want for Christmas). Directed by Christian Dyekjær, the film tells the story of 12-year-old Lucia, who lives in Greenland with her mother Claudia and her father Julius, who is working as a self-employed Santa. Lucia would also like to study the secrets of being Santa, however, but only boys have access to the International Santa Claus School. Still, she is promised a place if she can find the cure for a a mysterious disease…

The music for the film is written by Nicklas Schmidt and Kristian Eidnes Andersen. “The score is not overly Christmassy,” explains Schmidt. “Our idea was to make a lush, exciting and compelling orchestral soundtrack to go with the story. One that could both underline the adventurous drama and would lift the more human side of the plot, where the pre-teen daughter of Santa Claus tries to find her spot in a Christmas-realm heavy with traditions.”

Nicklas Schmidt has written the score for a number of feature films, documentaries and TV series, including the Astrid Lindgren biopic Becoming Astrid (2018) released on Sony Classical, and children’s animation ranging from the 3-D adventure The Great Bear (2011) through the genre parody Ronal the Barbarian (2011) to the haunting Beyond Beyond (2014). His score for A Conspiracy of Faith (2016) is also available from MovieScore Media.

Kristian Eidnes Andersen is a award winning composer with more than 30 years of experience in film music and sound. He has designed sound and written scores on more than 100 films including a long list of Lars von Trier’s productions ie.g. ManderleyAntichristMelancholiaNymphomaniac. He has collaborated numerous times with Norwegian Per Olav Sørensen on the tv-series The Half BrotherThe Heavy Water War, Nobel and upcoming Netflix series QuicksandJulemandens Datter marks his 4th collaboration with director Christian Dyekjær.
