Provenance is a haunting, beautifully done film. The acting is superior. The soundtrack, directing, cinematography and script are also outstanding. The peaceful, idyllic setting in a quaint town in the south of France, contrasts with the moody discontent, the despair of the character's inner turmoil. There is an abundance of clever foreshadowing that reinforces the themes. Clues symbolically intertwine to support the shocking final twist such as the movie's title and Peter's (Harry MacQueen) job as an historian. The music soundtrack dominated by piano/violin melodies acts almost as another character in the movie with it's vibrant, violently passionate tones, then sudden juxtaposition to lilting melodic whispers, complementing and interconnecting with John's (Christian McKay) emotions. Music connects the main characters in a web of joy teetering on destruction. The end is disturbing and poignant. It makes the viewers question their lives and feelings about the world and love. This movie decidedly deserves to win awards!!

Paul Handley and his musicians played for my daughters wedding at The London Hotel, and also played for the dance after we realized the DJ we had booked for the evening wedding Was not adequate for our dancing. He quickly arranged the band to take care of the whole evening and is one of the most talented musicians we have ever seen! Paul can play many genres, he made my daughter’s wedding at The London Hotel, Holborn, London. B. Polycarpou 2017.
