A wonderful score with foreign country affection

"I love this soundtrack because it reflects a feeling of foreign country.When you hear the music you will really recall the movie and ponder it.It's a beautiful love story so you won't miss it!"

"fans of howard's scores for cronenberg's films will like this just the same,but fans of the rings scores may be less familliar with his usually dark and scary music and thusly it'll take a few listens to truly enjoy his earlier works.In my mind Howard Shore and Angelo Badalamenti are the two best composers at what they usually do-dark,unsettling soundscapes that put you in ,say,the drearyness of a dank basement or the chill of a bare forest in the middle of winter.
this particular work has howard tackling asian influences to go with his orchestral movements,and as expected it's truly amazing in it's subtle,ambient darkness.there are a few"wake up"points where part of the m butterfly play are spoken in japanese(?)and it's a bit startling and comical.
also,I've never seen the actual play other than what's in the movie,but the person who said it was bad or a weak effort on both the musical and theatrical level is dead wrong in my personal opinion!the first time I saw the film I had no prior knowledge of the story or anything about "madame butterfly",so the ending was a total shock and mind trip for me!see the film(first rent,then buy)and definatly buy the score before the last copies are gone!!!"
