A Betty & Zorg movie Fan
on 14 February 2009
I love the movie and if I didn't have a sentimental attachment to it, and associate the music with it in my mind, I would probably never listen to this ost by M.Jarre (ost The English Patient). It's just really not that great as music. But if you loved the movie and are a sentimental sap like me, then by all means buy it.
The most beautiful tracks on the cd are all very short. One times in at about 56 seconds! With the exception of 2 or 3 tracks, almost every song is a little over a minute in length. The entire cd is about 40 minutes long. Most soundtracks usually contain complete versions of the songs when only a portion is used on the film. In this case I found that what you hear on the film is what you get on the soundtrack. Some of the tracks sound like samplers, with a fade up then fade down.
The music is un-even, with beautiful numbers seperated by bad ones, but that is a matter of opinion. If you saw the film and heard a song you liked, beware that the soundtrack is not much longer than what you heard on film. I would give this OST 5 stars because of the beautiful music, I gave it 3 because of it's length.
