5.0 out of 5 stars Is Kim an angel?, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wilde Winter Songbook (Audio CD)
Well, of course! This album is a tangible proof. Listen to "Burn Gold" and you will know why. But seriously, it's a seriously magical record. Admittedly, when its release was announced earlier this year, I was not qute sure it was a good idea. The concept of a Xmas album reeked of lack of inspiration and easy profit for little original input. How wrong was I. It's a wonderful blend of old songs in very laid-back and surprisingly fresh versions (songs I thought I wouldn't want to listen in yet another version - here I am, listening to them with immense pleasure) and new material that beautifully balances the old pieces. The new songs capture many aspects of Christmas season - melancholy, cheerfulness and affection. Some amazingly beautiful vocals from Kim, touching lyrics and hummable melodies. Stop being "cynical" as Kim sings in one of the new songs, just get it and enjoy.

Unfortunately such films are not made too often nowadays, the more it should be cherished. Genius acting, gentle tone, subtle music, psychological credibility, unique story. A film made with passion and there is such attention to detail. Images that stay with you for long. The film's finale is heartbreaking. Glenn Close added another memorable role to her amazing list of characters.
