Q: I have the soundtrack to The Hunger, but there is a piece of music from the movie that is not on it. Catherine Deneuve's character, Miriam, plays it as a piano solo twice. The first time is when Bowie goes into his coffin and she is in mourning (she's wearing a veil while she plays and tears are streaming down her face). She plays it again near the end when Sarandon comes in from her first "feeding" and blood is all over her t-shirt. Any ideas what the name of this piece is? I would appreciate any help! Thank You! (from Chris in Virginia, USA)
