Alexandre Desplat ended 2011 with what may be his finest work to date. Some people may say that claim is a bit of a stretch, but after experiencing this score and then the picture I became emotionally dissected by the music. The score is absolutely stunning and so full of constantly moving music that propels you on Oskar's journey that he takes in the film. The string work is simple yet stunning and the piano accents the score brilliantly in that grand Desplat fashion.

This film emotionally affected me the most in 2011. It's such a rich story with such an identifiable character. You feel Oskar's emotions through every inch of this journey and the music is there every step of the way. I think what caught me off guard initially is how bold the score was. This music is quite rigid and establishes its presence without ever really backing down. When I say that I don't mean it's wall to wall music, but the music is every inch of Oskar's character turned inside out. We see every inch of him inside and what is racing through his mind. It's quite stunning and in the end makes you feel emotionally vulnerable. The moments of beauty are so intense that they flourish with human spirit in a way only music can express. When the music needs to express tragedy it becomes scared. The music literally becomes scared just as Oskar becomes scared. It's such a unique thing to see the music act, because that is literally what Desplat is doing. He is composing music that is acting and reating to the plot. I think that's what makes it so appealing and relatable. Overall the experience was so memorable and it affected me greatly.

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is a beautiful experience filled with every inch of the human condition. It's a prime example of what score is meant to be and meant to do.

As a H. S. English teacher I showed this movie to my class for several reasons, but what strikes me most is the emotional intelligence of the movie. We get to see our protagonist struggle with trying to make sense of (or better yet come to grips with) the loss of his father, brilliantly played by Tom Hanks. We also get a glimpse into the mind-set of a child who has a touch of Aspberger's Syndrome. Oscar's mother, beautifully played by Sandrta Bullock, demonstrates the painful task of letting one's child sort things out for themselves. Also, Max von Sydow as the "damaged" grandfather adds immensely to the wounded pathos of this haunting tale of working through grief in a post-911 NYC. I sat through seven showings of this movie. Each one moved me immensely. And my student's were too. Highly recommened.

This soundtrack becomes one of the most effective factors to the great success of this movie, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close." Each piece represents a sensitive aspect of human feelings. Although all of them are not "loud" nor cheerful, they are peaceful and full of affection. I love how the director, Stephen Daldry, uses each piece of this soundtrack, allocating it to scenes of this tragedy. Best bargain for me!

This is one of the best scores of the year from one of the greatest composers of our time. Alexandre Desplat's score was such a highlight of the film with his incredibly beautiful theme and moving piano melodies. I highly recommend this as well as all of Desplat's work for anyone who loves elegant and powerful orchestral music.

I Love the film and I love the soundtrack. Beautiful, melancholy piano, echoing through the awe inspiring and moody music.
