Format: Audio CD
This original soundtrack ranks among the best by French composer Desplat, and certainly among the best of such genre, the Schindler's List included.
The music as well as the performance were superb. Too sad that the sound engineer passed away shortly after this track was being completed.
While Chinese pianist Lang Lang is not known primarily for playing French repertoire, his interpretation of Desplat's score and the Satie piece are totally in sync with the style.
Especially enchanting are the predominantly watery images employed in the music.
It would have been perfect if the French song was being included, as well as the Chinese opera excerpt.

Format: Audio CD
After listening to this motion picture soundtrack, I was disappointed that the children's chanson, "Jamais je ne t'oublierai," sung at the end of the film, was not included. Nevertheless, the CD compensates for this lack with other delights, including Lang Lang's lilting interpretation of Satie's "Gnossienne #1" and Mr. Desplat's haunting "River Waltz" which not only complements Satie's composition but also evokes the ephemeral mood of this memorable film so beautifully.

Well worth having in one's CD library.

Basically, if you enjoyed The Painted Veil, then the soundtrack is definitely something you should buy. I'm not generally interested in film sountracks, as they're often pretty bland, but The Painted Veil is definitely an exception. It captures the romance, death, passion, and bleakness of the film.

The best tracks are (in my opinion) River Waltz, Kitty's Theme and The Painted Veil.

This is a masterpiece. The music haunted me through the film, especially Gnossience no1. This is a proper sound track that speaks through the movie and delights on it's own.

Beautiful collection of melodies and very well played too. The satie track is slightly too staccato for my taste but never really irritating. A must-buy for anyone who has seen this film, which is also excellent. Only four stars because the recording level is so low. Rip it off to MP3 and you'll have trouble hearing it. I have some upscaling software which has solved this problem for me but most people won't know what that is or how to use it so beware.

There are some wonderful pieces of music on this cd composed by Alexandre Desplat which also features piano soloist Lang Lang. My only complaint is that I wish the tracks were longer (well it is a soundtrack I suppose)! The cd also features the magnificent Gnossienne no.1 By Erik Satie. Thoroughly recommended.
