One of 1998's better soundtracks also follows the most simple of formulas. Nicola Piovani's score for Life Is Beautiful is an impressionistic soundtrack at its finest--a delicious mix that sounds inspired by both simple folk melodies and Morricone's Cinema Paradiso score. Throughout, Piovani's themes are like a kid in candy store: bright-eyed and innocent. Tension is gradually introduced on tracks like "Il Treno Nel Buio," but ultimately this score is light and pleasant. The lone vocal cut, Monserrat Caballe singing on "Barcarolle," just makes this disc seem all the more Italian. Piovani hasn't created an epic score, but he has accentuated the difficult themes of Life Is Beautiful exceptionally well. --James Hendrickson

(Please-MORE), I'm begging for more! So, ah, I finally discovered one could own
the sound track. EVEN BETTER!
Sometimes I want to listen to something so happy, I just need a break from all the weird
things in life. This music is wafting through my house, and through my life. It inspires me
and gives me hope of SOME happiness in this life. I understand what it's like to have hope.
Even in the most dire and evil of circumstances. This movie and music takes me to that hope!
Piovani has somehow held on to the Italian flavor, carry it throughout the entire album, and
it of course positively, and directly affects the film.
I love the Italian flavor, both in the happy and in the sad or more solemn parts of the movie.
I love the part where Roberto tells his son, in the concentration camp, that they are going to
beat every body(in the contest they are in) and they do.
I see this, and it inspires me SO MUCH, I say to myself" I'm going to beat every body" too.
Pretty soon I'm RIDING HIGH, and dancing in my heart. Then I feel this happiness well up from
with in me, and I thank God every day for this movie, and THIS BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!!!
Life can be very hard. but God is greater, God is bigger ,and the word INSPIRATION means
to "breathe in", and THAT IS what happens in my heart and my soul with this movie, and this
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET THIS MUSIC. AND WATCH THE DVD!!!!
Buy yourself some flowers, dance around your kitchen even if you are by yourself, eat a pizza,
laugh out loud, and your friends will think you are crazy.
YOU will think you are crazy. Still laugh, and ENJOY!!!
Molto Gracia! Piovani and Roberto B.
