  “The Nightingale” is a revenge story, one that draws on familiar Victorian Gothic and Hollywood western tropes. It’s the tale of a wronged woman, and of white men in hostile territory.   The nightingale sang delightfully, and the tears came into the emperor’s eyes, nay, they rolled down his cheeks; and then the nightingale sang more beautifully than ever, its notes touched all hearts. The emperor was charmed, and said the nightingale should have .

Kent’s follow-up, "The Nightingale," is a completely different sort of film, with its own kind of horrors, different horrors, that of the ravages of colonialism, its violence, rape and murder.

The nightingale, a migrant songbird, is celebrated in literature and music for the beauty of its favours rural habitats, and is unlikely to be heard in Central London. Composition. The song was written in the then small French Composer(s): Manning Sherwin.
