5.0 out of 5 stars Right on the Button..., 2 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Music from the Motion Picture The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Audio CD)
Alexandre desplat seems to me to be one of the most underrated of contemporary movie composers working today.
Most people can name James Horner, Hans Zimmer, Michael Nyman etc., yet, Desplat has been producing some of the most consistently beautiful film scores of recent years - 'The Girl with a Pearl Earring' a case in point.
And here, with 'Benjamin Button' he has really excelled himself.
Simply put, this has to be some of the most beautiful music I have heard in a very long time.
'A New Life' is heart-tuggingly beautiful and 'It was nice to have met you' contains sprinkles of the kind of sparkly strings that wouldn't have seemed out of place on the Pinocchio soundtrack - just at the part where he realizes he has become a real boy! 'Sunrise on Lake Ponchartran' is even more gorgeous than its title.
Lush yet understated, quirky yet comforting - The soundtrack - like the F Scott Fitzgerald story it describes, is a proper little charmer. Destined to linger long in the ears, heart and memory.
If you feel in need of a little home-made romance this Valentine's day, Luxuriate in this, definitely the Aural equivalent of chocolate but without the calories... infact, it's the chocolate Button you can enjoy guilt-free over and over again!
