I think that your review is unjustified, and unfair. A true movie-watcher (with musical ideas), not a true musician (with cinematic ideas) should be reviewing a film with scenes of naval battle, the intesity of a boy's arm surgery, joyful travelling themes, the doctor's self-surgical bullet removal, the final seeuence at battle, with classical and folk tunes fitting for the age portrayed, as well as terse, tense percussion. The question is not how good the music was, but how well the story itself was told. And this story, in an age of batman, underworld, modern values degraded, sexual immorality rife, an old tale of a journey 'round the world in pursuit of an enemy ship, is told, and well. All vignettes and segments are not meant to please your musical tastes so much as it is meant to depict a beautiful segment in history--to bring a portion of lore to life, something you'll never comprehend.
