Songs in the movie, not on the soundtrack

"It drives me crazy when you hear a song in a movie, and expect the soundtrack to offer that song, but it isn't there! This CD is missing the duet between Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli that plays in the movie when Katarina Witt is skating. It can be found on Andrea Bocelli's CD, Sogno."

"In the movie Ronin, the song that is playing when Katarina Witt is shot is "Time To Say Goodbye" and it is not on the Ronin soundtrack. It is on Sarah Brightman's album entitled coincidently "Time To Say Goodbye". In the other reviews, it may have be confusing that Andrea Bocelli is also in that song but Ms. Witt's character is shot while skating before Andrea sings his part in this beautiful duet. I fully agree with another reviewer that perhaps the best piece of music in this terific film is not included in the soundtrack."
Hauntingly Beautiful And Exciting

"Elia Cmiral's score for Ronin is incredibly atmospheric, drawing the listener into the mood and feel of the film perfectly. The use of the Duduk (a type of Armenian wind instrument I believe) gives the score a somber quality that excellently captures the sense of loneliness and regret associated with the characters, such as on the track "The Girl Sold Us Out". The last piece in the score incorporates Duduk as well, but in the last few seconds, combines with the accompanying orchestra to create a beautifully bittersweet finale. It is also important to note, since this primarily an action film, that Cmiral has composed wonderful action cues that serve in building the dramatic tension, and then transform into pulse pounding "chase" and "fight music" that is unique and attention grabbing. Recently I went to Europe to study, and I made sure I took this CD with me. Not only would I miss the music if I didn't, but it turned out to be the best music to listen to while riding a night train across Europe. No score collection is complete without this CD."
