This score contains really good symphonic music.There are some passages used from Mozart' s Requiem Mass (four passages).There are many types of music contained by it.There are sad and elegiac tracks to illustrate the losses of individual persons,and the hardships of Magdalene' s (the prostitue who gave the title of the movie) life and the fact that Magdalene is used by everyone,and others not look at her as a human being,but as a toy which are only good to be used.The dramatic tracks reflect to the terrible suffer,losses and death of the people of France during the Fench Revolution,and also the scenes where certain characters are tortured by their conscience,and they feel themselves guilty,and beg for God to forgive them.The choir intensify the dramatic tracks to such a degree,that at a point it almost made me cry.There are relaxing tracks to illustrate the peace which was given by the people with the coming of Christmas.There are some romantic tracks to reflect to the true love of Magdalene and Mohr,and their great respect towards each other - they respect each other because they always adapt to any kind of situations.Mohr is the only person truly loved by Magdalene because he understand the emotions of Magdalene,and he not look to her as a toy to be used,but as an equally valuable person with valuable emotions.There is a track called the Archbishop' s Entertainment,in which track the music is ironic,and reflect to the abuse of morals by the archbishop.Highly recommended.
