"Antarctica" is at Least Equal to "Chariots of Fire"
David Thomson | Houston, TX USA | 03/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The music from "Chariots of Fire" is world famous. Unfortunately, few people are aware of "Antarctica," a composition at least equally fantastic. A previous community reviewer says the 1983 movie is mediocre. Was this film a documentary or work of fiction? I can't seem to find any information whatsoever. Thus, it's a safe bet that Koreyoshi Kurahara's movie was not worthy of such incredibly beautiful music. I probably listen to this sound track at least ten hours each month. Vangelis has created a masterpiece that readily conveys the austere coldness of Antarctica's vast and silent wilderness. Tracks 3, 5. & 7 are especially magnificent. One readily imagines heroes facing overwhelming obstacles and dangers.The Academy Award voting members disgrace themselves when ignoring work deserving of honor merely because the overall movie failed. This is a scandal that should not be tolerated, but it is probably best not to hold one's breath waiting for change. Nonetheless, the disgraceful behavior of the Hollywood elite does not prevent the reader from purchasing a copy. You will most assuredly find "Antarctica" a worthy addition to your film score collection."
A Mystical Voyage To A Vast And Haunting Land Of Ice And Sno
Brian E. Erland | Brea, CA - USA | 01/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Vangelis' soundtrack to Koreyoshi Kurahara's seldom seen and all but forgotten '84 film 'Antarctica' is one of the true undiscovered classics of the last twenty years. Possibly second only to his highly acclaimed 'Chariots of Fire' masterpiece, 'Antarctica eludes to a less emotional, more remote musical experience.
Vangelis' ethereal soundtrack masterfully transports the listener to a barren, yet exquistely beautiful soundscape that superbly captures the sense of isolation and loneliness of this vast, frozen continent. The pieces are haunting, mystical, yet surprisingly peaceful instead of disquieting. Without a doubt this is one of my all-time favorite CD's."
