Synopsis

Album Description
From Warner Independent, a new division of Warner Bros. Pictures, comes "A Very Long Engagement" ? a love story set during World War I featuring the director and star of "Amelie," Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Audrey Tautou. With a box-office total of $152 million, "Amelie" is one of the most popular foreign language films of recent years. Director Jeunet?s "Engagement" is the biggest budget French film in history, opening on 800 screens in its home country. Based on the acclaimed novel by Sebastien Japrisot, the story takes place at the close of the war, when Mathilde(Tautou) receives word that her fiancee is one of five wounded soldiers who have been court-martialed and forced into the no-man?s-land between the French and German lines to die an almost certain death. Unwilling to accept that her lover is lost to her forever, Mathilde embarks on an investigation, strengthened by a steadfast hope. In her quest to discover his fate, she is drawn deeper into the horrors of war and the indelible marks it leaves on those whose lives it has touched. The orchestral score is by Angelo Badalamenti ("Twin Peaks," "Mulholland Drive," "The Company," "The Straight Story," "Lost Highway"), conducted by Phil Marshall.

A Film Score fo the Ages
Ryan Henke | BC Canada | 07/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a collector of many moive score over the past 10 years, I have found only a very few that I never get tired of hearing. This is one of the few. The music, while emotional, is not overly sentemetal, or sappy. The music has several themes that you will be humming for days after listening. The music has a truly haunting feeling in parts, aswell as a feeling of joy.I would strongly recomend this CD to anyone who has a love of beautiful music, or simply enjoy music that will enrich the soul."
A wonderful, sweeping score

"Its one of the best scores I have heard in a long time. Wonderful. Fits the mood and tension of the film well. Just saw the movie for the 2nd time, still shattering and heartbreaking.

"I am a longtime Badalamenti fan, from his TWIN PEAKS days. Had not seen the movie yet decided to try this score since I trust his haunting music.
This is one of the best soundtracks I have ever listened to!

Not only it is moody, easy listening and, at the same time, soothing without turning to yawning - it is a great driving music to!
