Famous Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou has completed the score for ‘Bomb, A Love Story’, directed by Iranian actor, director and screen writer Peyman Ma’adi.

So far not much is known about the story of his film, but one synopsis reads: as the bombardment of Iranian cities by Iraqi forces started during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, people and families experienced new situations next to each other.

“I was greatly impressed by your film. The idea behind the story - being in love under airstrikes - the text and the interwoven parts of the story are very strong and humane,” Karaindrou wrote to Ma’adi after watching the film,  Mehr News Agency reported.

Iran fought a brutal Iraqi-imposed war for eight years in which an estimated one million people died on both sides. The military conflagration ended after Iran accepted a UN Security Council resolution.

Karaindrou, 77, is best known for composing film scores for the well-known Greek director Theo Angelopoulos.

Karaindrou has a long history of composing for films and theatrical works. To date, some 18 feature films, 13 plays and 10 TV series have featured her music.  Ma’adi, 46, has also performed in ‘Bomb, A Love Story’ along with Leila Hatami, Habib Rezaei, Siamak Ansari and Siamak Safari. The film will be premiered at the 36th Fajr Film Festival, February 1-11, in Tehran.
