A brilliant life-enhancing music experience!!

This CD is a perfect companion to what was without doubt the best foreign film of last year. Yann Tiersen, the composer, has majestically conjured up a delightful album. He plays all the instruments himself to conjure up something magical. The tracks are so uplifting that listening to them I feel great.
I saw Amelie last November and fell in love with it. I've done the same with the soundtrack. I love the soundtrack because I feel swept away with its joyfulness and emotional aspect. There are nice touches with two songs from the 30's "Guilty" and "Si Tu N'etais Pas La". My favourite track is "Comptine D'un Autre Ete" because it says so much in such a short playing time and it epitamises the mood of the movie.
This soundtrack is possibly one of my favourites of all time. It is truly a wonderful musical world.
