5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Let Me Weep, July 18, 2003
This review is from: Talk to Her (Audio CD)
Most film music is only written to underscore a scene, set the mood or raise tensions. It is the poor stepchild of films. Yet some film directors realize that music can make or break their film. Pedro Almodovar is one of these. He is a traditionalist, a formalist director whose ideas about the importance of Music in Film he shares with the directors of the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Alberto Iglesias has composed the lions share of the music for "Talk to Her" that not only plays an integral part of the film in which it is featured but can stand alone on it's own merits as emotional and beautiful and of course evocative of the filmed images of Almodovar's breathtaking film.
One of the most awe-inspiring Musical interludes in any film in recent memory is included here: Gaetano Veloso's studio recording of "Cucurrucucu Paloma." It is excellent of course but the live version from the film would have been preferable.
Put this CD on, open a bottle of Allende Rioja Reserva, slice some Chorizo and Manchego and immerse yourself in the glories of Iglesias's music.
