Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sally Potter's film tells the tale of a young Jewish girl caught up in a maelstrom of artistic, emotional, and political conflicts on the eve of the Nazi occupation of France. The Man Who Cried is set against a disparate backdrop of Paris opera houses and rich Gypsy folk music, and Potter has assembled a diverse, compelling score with the help of Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. Opera fans should note the presence of meteoric young star Salvatore Licitra, a tenor whose performances here (which include excerpts from Puccini's Tosca, Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, and Verdi's Il Trovatore) mark his recording debut. Giving that operatic sensibility its historical and ethnic context, Golijov's delicate pieces, performed by the Kronos Quartet, serve to balance the swirling Gypsy verve of the Taraf de Haïdouks ensemble. The resulting score gleefully turns the various clichés of "world music" on their heads, revealing new connections between Euro-folk and the classics as the disc showcases traditionalists and newcomers alike, introducing a bright new operatic star in the bargain. --Jerry McCulley

"The Man Who Cried" is one of the best soundtracks of the last few years. It is a flawless, spellbinding compilation of classical opera (Bizet, Verdi, Puccini, Purcell), Roma (Gypsy) music (Taraf de Haidouks), and original score ("Cesar's Song," "Close Your Eyes," "Without a Word." The Kronos Quartet performs the original score).
Tenor Salvatore Licitra in particular was a gem, this being his debut recording. His voice is tragically gorgeous on "E Lucevan le stelle," heroic and lighthearted on "Di quella pira," haunting on "Je crois entendre encore" (especially on the Yiddish version) and "Close Your Eyes," an achingly tender Yiddish lullaby that Suzie/Fegele's (Christina Ricci) father sings to her as a child in Russia.
Christina Ricci's singing voice is provided by Czech chanteuse Iva Bittova, whose sultry jazz stylings on "Gloomy Sunday" and childlike innocence on "Dido's Lament" combine to form a musical portrait that matches Suzie's (Christina Ricci's) screen image of a teenager teetering on the edge of adulthood, exploring her musical talent and blossoming sexuality. A pity that the final version of "Close Your Eyes" sung by Bittova wasn't included, but "The Man Who Cried" is a fantastic soundtrack that captures the tumultuous musical world of WWII Paris.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Who Cried May 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Moving, versatile, deep and rich. Salvatore Licitra, will you marry me?
The Kronos Quartet, Iva, every artist named and unmentioned on this soundtrack will pull at your heart.
It's not necessary to have seen the movie to appreciate the soundtrack - it is as operatic as cinematic, as large as it is personal, as complex as it is simple.
This is one of the best recorded works I have heard in years, and my musical taste is broad. Spend the few dollars, add it to your collection, enrich your life, for it is short.
Christina

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful movie, beautiful music January 5, 2004
By Ann
Format:Audio CD
This CD features the debut recording for Salvatore Licitra who proves to be a tenor to look out for in the future. Combined with the powerful voice of Licitra, this CD contains tracks of traditional roma (gypsy) music. Rent/buy the DVD/Video, watch the movie and then buy the CD - you won't regret it.

Excellent CD overall. Iva Bittova is the real discovery - she is sensational, and should perform more songs similar to the two she did in the movie. Salvatore Licitra is also great

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Who Cried November 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The music in this movie is so beautiful, it's almost haunting. I have watched the movie 4 times in the past 3 days and can hardly get enough of it. I was not a fan of Johnny Depp's until now. Salvatore Licitra's voice is incredibly beautiful. I can't say enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Who Really Sings December 6, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing CD combining familiar and unfamiliar tunes. The result is kind of like pulling a magical rabbit out of an old but at the same time new hat. Those known names like Bizet, Verdi and Puccini are ever present, but the real voice of perfection comes from the name of Osvaldo Golijov whose music breathes a whole kind of magic into what we usually think of as "classical" music. I definitely like this CD and would recommend it to anyone who is out to be seduced (for lack of a better word) by these breathtaking and beautiful sounds.

Format:Audio CD
Beautiful music, some of the best tenor arias from Italian opera, sung perfectly, and then South American music from heaven. I recommend this (hard to find) disc to all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rose Among the Thorns September 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't expecting so many instrumentals and 'When I Am Laid in Earth' was a disappointment but Licitra's arias are well worth the price.'Je Crois Entendre Encore' is much better here than on the 'Duetto'CD.Glad I bought this.
