Synopsis

Amazon.com
Atom Egoyan's film merited every last award it received, and Mychael Danna's score is in the same wonderfully inventive mold as his work on Kama Sutra and Exotica. What sets this apart, though, is lead actress Sarah Polley's fragile, quite lovely vocals on Jane Siberry's "One More Colour," The Tragically Hip's "Courage," and the title track, which is based on a Robert Browning poem. --Jeff Bateman

Sarah Polley the Delicate Hero
EriKa | Iceland | 10/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sarah Polley is the heroine of this soundtrack. I don't necessarily feel that the soundtrack would be brilliant without her contributions as vocalist. This is not a soundtrack that could stand on its own without her voice. The score fit the film extremely well, but to make this soundtrack worth the money and the five star rating, Sarah Polley's tracks were essential. "Courage" has come to be one of my favourite songs, and her renditions of "One More Colour" and "The Sweet Hereafter" are so otherworldly and powerful that you can just... feel the impact! Based on Polley's talent here, you will not regret buying this CD and won't mind playing it incessantly. (In fact I bought the CD and recorded "Courage" three or four times in a row for listening to in the car! Yeah, that's how good it is!)"
Wonderful

"Mychael Danna has created a beautiful, haunting, somewhat mystical score for The Sweet Hereafter. Every song is equally good as the rest. The real standouts on the CD though, are those tracks featuring vocals by Sarah Polley (The Sweet Hereafter, One More Colour, Courage, Dog Track Drizzle, and Boy). The lyrics are poetic, and she has a gorgeously fragile voice."
Swept up in it

"after seeing this movie and hearing the opening music accompanying Ian Holms journey through the car wash..I was never the same. This film comes back to me over and over...and I cannot raise my hands any higher in praise for Egoyan or Danna. If one has not seen or heard this film or music then you are denying yourself a journey into a world that is so haunting, harsh, and unforgiving but despairingly beautiful at the same time.I think the music especially Polly's version of The Tragically Hips Courage proves she is a dynamic dame headed for great heights.This is the quiet work of masters."
