Julie & Julia, based on a pair of true stories, tells the tales of women who transform their lives (and marriages) with their culinary activities. One story, set in France in the ‘40s and ’50s, follows Julia Childs (Meryl Streep) as she develops the skills she would later use to introduce French cooking to American housewives. The second story, which takes place in New York in the post-9/11 era, portrays Julie Powell (Amy Adams) as she blogs about her attempts to cook every recipe in Childs’ Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Composer Alexandre Desplat has created scores for numerous French films and American features such as Syriana and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and is expert at utilizing the musical idioms of both countries in his work, incorporating pop, jazz, musette, and other flavors into this appealingly light score. The soundtrack also includes Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer,” Charles Aznavour’s “Mes emmerdes,” and Doris Day’s “A Bushel and a Peck.” Things wrap up with Margaret Whiting intoning the old Sammy Cahn/Jule Styne tune, “Time After Time.”
The Movie & Music are a great pair
Just got home after watching the movie. What a delight! When the movie was over, I too wanted to rush home and purchase the soundtrack. So thrilled I did. Meryl and Amy were a joy to watch as were their husbands, and the rest of the cast. The music danced in my head til I finally got home and could purchase it. Go see the movie and enjoy the soundtrack.
Very pleased with this album...
The first thing out of my mouth after watching the movie was... I NEED that soundtrack. This album lives up to the movie. Alexandre Desplat's evocative themes are perfectly suited to the delightful characters and scenes. And let's face it... When are we ever going to get another album with both Charles Aznavour and David Byrne's Talking Heads together. Quelle bonne surprise! I recommend you see the movie, and then you'll really appreciate this music. Bonne Appetit!
Love at first taste
I love this album just as good as The Curious Case of BB Great job!
