Kiss of the Dragon

Director Chris Nahon brought kung fu to Paris with his 2001 feature debut, Kiss of the Dragon, or Le Baiser Mortel du Dragon. Writing and producing credits include one of France’s top independent filmmakers Luc Besson (Nikita, The Fifth Element) as well as Chinese superstar Jet Li, who also plays the lead role.

The film would see Craig Armstrong meet Besson for the first time, with the French producer travelling to Glasgow to work with him on the score. The resulting music was recorded over a week at Besson’s Normandy studios, the Digital Factory.
