Lush soundtrack - transports you to Imperial Russia...
on 14 September 2012
This is an extremely good soundtrack by Dario Marianelli. Having watched the film, the main thing that stood out for me was Marianelli's lush soundtrack (aside from Joe Wright's inventive use of location and stylised direction). It definitely has a Romantic style (influence from Tchaikovsky, which would make sense, given it's set in late 19th Century Russia).
Hopefully this soundtrack will be nominated for an Academy Award, as it's easily the most memorable soundtrack that I've heard this year.
