Format: Audio CD
I'm quite a fan of film soundtracks - at their best they can be great stand alone items and collections of songs from several genres that somehow blend into a great album. Then again there are the albums that evoke the mood of the film in question, almost behaving like an audio reminder of the feeling that you were left with after watching the movie. For me this CD hits the mark on both of those counts.
The 1st time I saw the film, 'Broken Flowers' probably scored about 4 stars : I really liked it (great script, excellent performances from all of the leads), but something just kept it from being a classic. However, I did find it slightly haunting, its tale of loss, regret, growing old and general existential angst all coming back to me days after watching it.
This CD is the soundtrack to that feeling. Wonderful selection of songs (including the great Ethiopian tracks - see also the superb 'Ethiopiques' albums) skipping seemlessly from genre to genre, but still cohesively clinging together into one of the very best CD's that I've heard in months. Between my mp3 player and my home stereo I've probably listened to this CD at least once or twice a week for a year now.
Highly recommended to fans of the film and to serious music buffs...

When I watched Broken Flowers part of what struck me was the great use of music in the movie and particularly Mulatu Astatke, who plays a strange kind of almost druggy African Jazz. The Marvin Gaye track I want you was another standout put to particularly good use. Besides these are a nice track by Holly Golightly, a really heavy track called Dopesmoker by a band called Sleep followed by a calming piece from Faure's Requiem. The Greenhornes start and finish the album, and they're not bad either. Well worth it, - give it a try.

Really enjoyed the CD - it was in perfect condition and brought back a lot of memories of the film I had seen several years ago.
The speed with which it arrived was truly amazing.
Thanks once again.

An introduction to some new artists - great music accompanying a quirky film. Recommended highly if you want to try something different.
