Rescue Dawn Music By Klaus Badelt

Werner Herzog‘s Rescue Dawn recounts the true story of German-born Dieter Dengler (Christian Bale), who dreamed of flying. After making his way to the United States, he joined the Navy during the Vietnam War and became a pilot. He was shot down over Laos and captured, but eventually organized a daring escape with a small band of captives. In describing the music to the film, Variety states, “[A]part from Klaus Badelt’s keening original score, featuring mournful cellos and piano tones, music used includes Wagnerian opera and other classical compositions.”
