Now Playing: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Although this film's action genre certainly isn't for everyone, i feel the often reliable 'filmtracks' gave a rather overly critical, if not pushy review.
I'm a drama-lover myself, though i try to watch films of every kind..and this one i happened to love.
Aside from my personal opinions about the movie's rather well acted, and often emotional scene's (i thought they did a -great- job all around), and a script/story that was something to actually think about in this day and age (as in technology advancing to such a stage that it evolves...'not' relying on the freak lightning accident which Filmtracks main review utterly blaims EDI's behavior on - There was a bit more depth to it than that.), i would have hoped for more attention to be given to the soundtrack directly.
We all have opinions and tastes...but call me blindly optomistic for giving more credit to this fine film. In particular, and touching quickly on links between the soundtrack and film, i was overjoyed to hear the daring introduction of middle-easternesque choral vocals at key points. It really served to add emotional impact right where it was needed, not to mention bring to mind our current world situation for when these kinds of "accident's" happen. (again, only in my humble opinion).
I enjoyed the realistic dealings with the relationship aspect also, as brief as they were.
Yes, this is an action film, but in my mind, an intelligent one, as well as one with a fantastic score.
