Personal Quote:

[on favorite films] I've always been a film lover - that's why I've always wanted to write music for films. But if I had to choose three films: Barry Lyndon [1975], Chinatown [1974] and The Godfather [1972]. And in animation it would be The Jungle Book [1967], 101 Dalmatians [1976] and all the Tex Avery films. [2016] See more »

Trivia:

His Greek mother and French father met in the US while attending university. After the marriage, they moved to France where Desplat was born. See more »
