Enchanting and Plain French Beauty,
By A Customer
This review is from: Amelie (Audio CD)
This soundtrack contains the most beautiful, dreamy and at the same time melancholic instrumental music I have ever heard. It is how France feels like as a phantastic place in your own head.
Jazz musician Yann Tiersen left us a breathtaking soundtrack. Like the movie is the soundtrack continuously happy, fresh and minimalist without any big orchestra. An accordeon, a piano and a few violins seem to be everything it takes to create Amelie's world and feelings.
I would recommend watching the movie first, before deciding to buy the soundtrack. It is much easier understood when knowing what the music is about and what pictures it succeeds in caturing.
