I must congratulate Dario Marianelli for utilizing the typewriter as a musical instrument on tracks from this album, it really creates atmosphere and tension which is so palpable in this film. Tracks such as 'Briony' really stand out as atmospheric and the theme in this track reccurs throughout the album. A stand out track is 'Elegy for Dunkirk'. This is a beautiful and moving piece of music which coincides with my favourite part of the film; the long tracking shot of Dunkirk. This is a very well put together soundtrack and I found it integral to the mood and atmosphere of the film which is excellent. If you are a fan of soundtracks and like Marianelli's previous scores, then you will definately enjoy and appreciate this album.
Amazing....having read the book, and loved it i was pleasently surprised with the success of the film! i think that one of the key factors is the music....it heightens senses, mirrors exactly what you are supposed to feel at the moment in which it is happening! Great score, great book, great film!!!
You just have to listen to it! For me the best song is 'Elegy For Dunkirk'
