Enemy@the Gates, Schindler's List, Balto   Tuesday, May 8, 2001 (12:02 p.m.) 

Does anyone know the source of the repeated motif used in the Enemy @The Gates, Schindler's List and Balto. I saw in one of the threads that it was based on a Jewish folk song. Anyone know the name of it?

...Noticed the same. Sounds like some sections of this soundtrack are more Williams-ish than Horner. I surmised that it is the same source material (there are moments when I swore I was listening to Shinder's List again), but I cannot recall the folk music either, if that is indeed the source. Methinks Horner might have unconsciously (or purposefully) lifted the motif from Williams, being another prominent WWII film set away from the American side of the war...

I noticed the very same music, and feel, from the score. With the camera work so very much like Saving Private Ryan, I was convinced that Spielberg must have had a role in Enemy. I have searched to find a connection, but have not found one. Anyone know if Spielberg/Dreamworks was involved in Enemy?

Theme   Tuesday, September 11, 2001 (4:38 p.m.) 

I just like to say that the main theme is just gorgeous and I love it.
And I didn't notice the Schindler's list similarities until someone
pointed it out, and while I can see the influence, I think they are quite
different in their implementation.
