For a soundtrack to such a sad, sad movie, this is really beautiful background music that is easily as good as the gentler compositions of such soundtrack composers as Mark Isham and James Horner, two of my favorites. It is a very quiet, rather melancholic work, yet never treacly, more like an undercurrent of emotion that can sneak up on you and is very moving. I love it and will have to look for more of this composer's work. I doubt the composer intended its use this way, but it is actually very good background music for writing, reading, or quiet reflection, somewhat similar in that respect to Phillip Glass's wonderful soundtrack to the movie The Hours. I highly recommend this soundtrack, which deserves all the accolades it gets.

I knew when I ordered this collection that it did not feature the piece featured at the end of the film by Elton John. I actually wanted a score that did not contain any vocals. I enjoy reading and I find that vocals can sometimes distract me from the printed word. As I am sometimes proofing for friends, it is important that I focus. The fact that the titles are short in length should not deter one from ordering this CD, as they flow easily into each other. There really is one theme which is consistent throughout, yet it does not get overused or tired.

I have been searching for this haunting & heartbreaking soundtrack for years. The music fit the movies scenes so well. If you liked the film get the soundtrack. It is wonderful. It stands up on its own. Track # 10 is simply devastating.

The two main themes resonate through the score many different times, and the 'thinking' score (French Succeed) and heartbreaking (How long to sink in?) a couple times. The longest and most beautiful track, combining all the beautiful elements is Tongues. There's over 40 minutes of breathtaking music that paints a deep contemplative picture of the world you cannot get anywhere else, combining awe and beauty with tragedy and humility. I have to be in a quiet mood for this, but it does not depress me. It makes me happy and gives me a buffer for the world, not so-rose coloured glasses to See through.

They stopped making this CD for a while, so I had to go directly to the label that made it to get a copy. After hearing it in the movie I simply had to have it. It cost me thirty bucks and was a pain to get but never has a CD been more worth it than this one. It is haunting and simple and beautiful. It made a great movie even greater and proves that while the movie needed the score, the score does not need the movie.

I have recently ordered this cd and I thought Elton John's song at the end of the movie was on it. Does anyone know what the name of the song is and where to obtain it? I believe it is called "the love between a father and his son"
