Yeah, I guess you're right. I like the light ambience of the score and I think the synth effect lends to this. Even what I think to be actual string performances sound programmed, less resonant than if not, and more "unreal".

I think the overall ambience achieved is rather unique, though maybe not as catching as that of A Beautiful Mind.
