Great if you want the Eric Serra Soundtrack - NOT if you wan

"This soundtrack is fine if you are looking for the Eric Serra Soundtrack - that's the soundtrack to the French Version of the film as well as the new Director's Cut Version (which is the only version available on DVD).
However, if you want the original American Version Soundtrack by Bill Conti from the original American release of the film in the late 80's (which in my humble opinion is WAY better than the Director's cut which gives too much info and takes away from some of the mystique), then you will have to search elsewhere. I do not think there's a way to find it on CD, but YOU CAN FIND it for Download!!! For years it was unavailable, but it's out there now. Just search for "Bill Conti The Big Blue" or "Bill Conti Le Grande Bleu" on yahoo or google and you will find a couple of sites that have Bill Conti's beautiful score! Enjoy!"
Among my best loved film music!

"Years ago, when The Big Blue movie was released, many of my friends failed to grasp its message -they thought it to be but the story of the friendship/rivalry between two divers.
But what not even one failed to get was the beauty of the music... I even recall one saying how listening to the soundtrack with his eyes closed evoked "blue" sensations!
Among my best loved film music ever!"
