Dickon Hinchliffe, a founding member of Tindersticks, is carving out a second career as a film score composer (his previous efforts including Forty Shades of Blue, Keeping Mum, and Married Life), and he cuts another slice with his music for writer/director Joel Hopkins' autumnal romantic comedy Last Chance Harvey, starring Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. As heard on this soundtrack album, Hinchliffe's twenty-seven-and-a-half minutes of musical cues use lightly strummed acoustic guitar and gently played piano melodies over sweetly swelling strings (courtesy of the FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague) to augment the love-late-in-life theme of the film. Often, the music sounds just one step — and a sensitive lyric — from developing into a pop/rock ballad. Sandrine's end credit song "Where Do We Go" takes that extra step. Also included is a neo-rockabilly tune, "I'm a Mean, Mean, Mean Son of a Gun," by Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, used as source music in the film.
Brilliant Soundtrack. Bravo to Thompson
Not only is this a brilliant, heart warming film, but the soundtrack is as well. Even the short numbers such as "Kate" are worth it. It is sure to make your mood a little bit better, if not more. Now all we need is the movie up here, but none of this rental ripoff nonsense. Cheers to Thompson.
Not too shabby...
I haven't seen the film yet and I haven't heard of this composer before. So this review is very unbiased. I like the combination of piano, guitar and strings. It reminds me of a couple songs on "Beginnings" by Josh Kramer which I actually prefer over this score. Overall, I would say it's good - definitely not the best score in the world, but if this is a new composer on the horizon, I would like to listen to what they do in the future.
This album induces the same euphoria as the movie.
