This review is from: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (Audio CD)
I genuinely think this is one of the greatest film soundtracks ever written, both in terms of its integral contribution to a superb film, and in its value as a stand-alone work. It is one of the most listened-to CDs in my bloated collection. A point that other reviewers fail to mention, that only makes this more impressive, is that the score was written by Tom Twyker, the film's director. It absolutely staggers me that such a feat can be accomplished by someone 'moonlighting' from their day job as a film director. A 'total' artist. If there have ever been more stunningly evocative musical moments written than the climaxes to 'The Perfume' and 'The Crowd Embrace', I've yet to hear them.
