Comments about the soundtrack for Hart's War (Rachel Portman)

Edit | Delete
Another take (that's far more negative)

One thing is for certain: it's nearly impossible for Portman to completely lose the charm of her compositions when she's given a full orchestral ensemble. There is an intangible optimism that prevails in all of her orchestral works, perhaps due to her choice of chord progression. In Hart's War, there is never a despairing moment. Even when brazen action and killing is taking place on screen, there is a kind sensitivity that continues in each cue.

I can't seem to see where you're coming from there, but to each his own. (**)
