Partisan and other LC songs in the movies

Post by Tryfan » Wed Oct 05, 2016 7:32 pm

I have just seen the film 'The Hunt for Wilderpeople' and was pleased to find that Partisan song was featured in it.

Haven't seen a reference to this film on Forum as yet, hence this post. :D

I saw the film too and was delighted when I heard it. They played a good 2/3 minutes of it as well. Usually, they cut songs just when you're getting into it. Good film too.

Apparently 'So Long Marianne' features in the new Disney film, Pete's Dragon, which - co-incidentally - was also filmed here in New Zealand!
