SUBLIME! MUSICAL PERFECTION! 10 STARS NOT ENOUGH.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ennio Morricone's score for Cinema Paradiso is inspired. There is, in my opinion, no more perfectly-suited score for a film. I purchased the original DRG version as soon as possible after seeing the film. The great thing about this "newer" version is that is features additional tracks--the more the better, in this case. Melodic, sweet, nostalgic, and lyrical. The absolute best of Morricone, universally acclaimed, and among the favorites of the composer's admirers [and there are legions]. A wonderfully engaging listening experience apart from the film.

One of my favorite selections [that may not be an obvious choice for many] is the medley that underscores the movie-reel montage, where the composer takes the main theme and plays it in different styles, including dixieland, swing, and lush-romantic. The love theme, co-composed by the Maestro's son Andrea [then a budding composer], is almost too beautiful. This is music that sweeps you along, rising and falling at just the right moment.

This music has been widely emulated in commercials to evoke nostalgia for a time-gone-by. And, for good reason, it's just plain delightful.

ABSOLUTE ESSENTIAL TOP 5 MORRICONE ON ANYONE'S LIST."
Brilliant, premiere!

"fast shipping from caiman_com, I ordered it during the Christmas holidays and received it right before the New Year's Eve. Far beyond my estimation! Besides, the most important thing is the soundtract. This CD has 23 tracts. I compared this one with another version: "Cinema Paradiso: Original Soundtrack Recording (1988 Film) [SOUNDTRACK]" and found out that the former one included all the tracts the latter had and much more than that. The price between these two version is very similar. That's why I bought this imported soundtract! The quality of the songs is perfect!

This CD is a great companian with the original movie! It will remind you of every sentimental scene in the film. Highly recommanded!"
A little repetitive, but great.

"The one I bought had a different cover, but the same tracklist. It's nice to hear extended versions, as well as previously unreleased tracks.

My only gripe with the score is the slight clipping on some of the tracks, and this is the case with every recording that I have heard.

This is a great score, and along with the solid performances by the actors, makes the film great."
