"Whether or not you liked the film, this score is one of Zimmer's forgotten treasures! It is beautifully written and performed. There is a combination of orchestra and synthesized sounds that blend seamlessly together. My favorite tracks are actually the first and last ones. Both tracks flourish into lush and moving orchestral melodies, although I have to say that the last track is slightly more moving. If you have seen the film, you may agree with this considering what takes place in the film. The score is pretty short, and the tracks are divided up slightly funny, but overall these things are minor drawbacks. If you come across this score (which can be somewhat tricky to find) pick it up! You won't be disappointed! Especially Zimmer fans!"
Moving, meditative, romantic vision of Burma

"This CD transports me to another continent. I've had this CD for years and recently rediscovered it. Have been playing it as white noise as I work at the computer and plan to take it on a getaway w/my husband -- perfect for the drive, or better yet, in the hotel... One of the best movie soundtracks ever -- I'd put it [almost] up there w/the Godfather soundtrack in its ability to evoke visions of a culture or society -- and it sounds like a stand-alone instrumental rather than 'soundtracky' -- I'd love to see the movie but never have. I'd also love for Zimmer to write the score for a film on Latin America [esp colombia] with the same delicate ethnic flavor that he used in this one."
