Another version to look out for - sadly not available on CD is the LP which has Legrand's orchestral suite on music from the film. This one is up there with Gershwin's "An American in Paris" suite. This LP also has a dazzling suite for two pianos and orchestra on Legrand's music for "The Go Between" (Julie Christie stars).
They both get better every time they're played!
Michel Legrand has created one of the most gentle and hauntingly beautiful scores in all of moviedom. And, ironically, it is delivered in a quiet, almost flat, but perfectly idiomatic manner by a cast of some of the most beautiful people ever seen in the movies. That it leaves us with such an emotional punch to both the heart and the head is its genius. But trust me, it does! See it and listen to it -- you won't forget it.

Incredible collection of French songs from a wonderful movie. All lyrics are in French, of course.Published on August 14, 2014 by Amazon Customer
I was disappointed in the quality of the sound and picture. The movie came out over 50 years ago so maybe recordings weren't very good then.Published on March 19, 2014 by Jack E Griffith
I saw the movie as a teenager (in Virginia). This album has all the charm of the original sound track and easily brings back the simple but poignant story. Read morePublished on November 1, 2010 by Mat

I bought this CD for my lady friend. I haven't seen the movie yet, but she is a big fan. I might rate this CD higher if I knew what they were singing about. Read morePublished on September 16, 2004 by Allen Sliwinski
