Although there's only 8 songs, they fit perfectly into one of the most beautiful movies i've ever seen. The theme by Paul Cantelon will haunt you forever
Beautiful Movie, Beautiful Sountrack
Allthough I am not a fan of every song, they fit perfectly into the movie. The theme for the diving bell is beautiful. I also recommend downloading Explosions In The Sky - Your Hand In Mine, which was feautured in the trailer and is a great song
A stunning soundtrack for a stunning film...
For my first review, it had to be good. And this compilation of eclectic and beautiful songs does the trick. From the opening notes of Trenet's understated beauty "La Mer" to Joe Strummer's near anthemic "Ramshackle", the Diving Bell's music is able to keep pace with a film that truly is the year's best. The ever-gritty Tom Waits delivers (as usual), and superb rockers "Chains of Love" and Ultra Violet" are wonderfully placed to compliment Jean-Dominique Bauby's rock n roll lifestyle as editor in chief at Elle magazine. The HIGHLIGHT of the soundtrack has to be Ultra Orange's "Don't Kiss Me Goodbye". This 'power ballad' echoes the sounds of The Velvet Underground (who are also featured here with the dreamy "Pale Blue Eyes"), - and if you close your eyes, you'll swear that Nico had taken over Emmanuelle's being. It's a great, great song. Finish off this compilation with Paul Cantelon's hauntingly beautiful score, and you've got en exceptional lineup from top to bottom. Bye the soundtrack and go see the film!
