The wrong list for great music from a bad film

"I rented the DVD of the film "At First Sight" a few years ago. Great idea, but the movie had a slow plot & shallow characters. The music is another issue, Mark Islam writes fantastic music, this is one of his highlights. The mood is rather equal throughout; sad but hopeful. I read in other review that Diane Krall sang in the movie, but the singer Gigi Worth in the CD does a great job, rather lower in pitch, an alto. The main theme repeats like in classical music, meaning that it changes a little each time. The theme is not boring as in some movie soundtracks where the same theme never develops. The last section has some jazz standards from Louis Armstrong, George Shearing, & Ella Fitzgerald. These are recorded very well & add a classic touch to the ending. This is one of those CD's that you can play over & over again. Check out Mark Islam other movie soundtracks."
"theme is particularly beautiful and deeply romantic"

"In the liner notes, Mark Isham states - "I wrote themes, not for individual characters, but for points in the story. There was a theme for their love scenes - a breakup theme - a theme that I developed to underscore the two people discussing things that were important to them...I composed music to reflect interior states, the specific cognitions which Virgil experienced".Opening theme is particularly beautiful, deeply romantic. The music speaks mostly with piano and strings, with underscore - "OUR EYES AREN'T WHAT MAKE US SEE", reaching the high excitement of - "A SEEING JOURNEY", with the sadness and brooding ' "YOU DON'T SEE ME".The closing - "LOVE IS WHERE YOU ARE" sung by Diana Krall in the film and Gigi Worth on the album is so tender and a responsive melody. The song tugs at your heart-strings giving you that ache just before it is broken.Total Time: 49:34 on 15 Tracks/ Milan Records - 73138 35869 2 (1998)"

The first 9 songs on the CD are Instrumental Suites but they are different each in their own way.Respectfully Reviewed"
