Two for the Road

“Two for the Road” was a 1967 film starring Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn. It is about a husband and wife who examine their twelve-year relationship while on a road trip to Southern France. The film was considered somewhat experimental for its time because the story is told in a non-linear fashion: it recounts their life together — through courtship and marriage, infidelity and parenthood — all “on the road” in a variety of cars via time-shifting vignettes.

The theme was composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. It never charted as a single, but has been recorded by many different artists. It was reportedly one of Mancini’s own favorites among his works.

My instrumental arrangement is fairly straightforward.
