Product Description


This sunny comic fable from idiosyncratic director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (City of Lost Children, Alien Resurrection, Delicatessen) boasts any number of intimate charms, not the least of which is Yann Tiersen's warmly inviting score. Composer and multi-instrumentalist Tiersen's work and training may have masterfully encompassed classical, pop, and rock, but his delightful Amélie music proves he is slave to none. In this, his fourth soundtrack, Tiersen displays an impressive command of idiom and melodic subtlety that's rightfully drawn comparisons to the great Nino Rota. With a Paris-set story driven by blossoming love, the composer frequently leans on the familiar Parisian street accordion motif as a starting point. If that sounds clichéd, it's anything but; Tiersen's delicate touch incorporates Gypsy flourishes, classical string ensembles, electronics, stark and lovely solo piano, and even minimalist technique--often in the same charming cue. The result is music that manages to sound variously breezy, fresh, and contemporary, yet somehow comfortably familiar. Amélie is a warm, postmodernist score that never forgets where its heart lies. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Dec 15 2007
By Aeneas
Format:Audio CD
Very nice cd, that brings many pleasant memories of the film. It captures the spirit of France and "paints" a musical landscape of France with the small villages, cabares, cafes and much much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars So French, So perfect July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
'Total Film' called the film "simply perfect" and the soundtrack lives up to this review superbly. It's stereotypically Parisien, tarditional and french, yet with a modern orchestral feel. I'm only a teenager, and I adored it! puts you in the right frame of mind for the film too, although unlike some OSTs you dont have to have seen the film to appreciate the music. It can get a little bit 1930s/40s but theres a good balance throughout! enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A favoirte though moody July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack carries with it the mood of the movie both the up and the down. This is the feel good movie of the year music for atmosphere. It is nice and refuses to obtrude when you are thinking. It just helps you think better.

By milap

There's nothing like this music, really! its absolutely fantastic. It makes feel like doing a number of things, going to France, buying an accordion, etc. INSPIRATIONAL. Every sad soul on the planet should be given a taste of this elixir.

When one views Amelie for the first time, he or she is greeted with an unfamiliarly breath-taking cinematic experience. Not only are the script, acting performances and directing insightfully innovative and insanely delightful, but the musical overlay is absolutely out of this world. With that said, you can see why the film, Amelie, and, consequently, the incumbent original soundtrack, have sparked mind-bending numbers, not only in France, where it originally debuted, but across the globe, as well. From start to finish, the album reaches back, provocatively, to capture the grace and beauty of some of music's greatest eras (pre-1960s)-Piano, Latin, Classic Opera, Rag-time, and English folk make more-than-impressive appearances, to name just a few. What's more is how each track tends to naturally flow into the next, truly offering the listener a classy- utterly unheard of-selection of songs to be taken into. The instrumental selections, alone, presented here, are beyond comprehension and words, leaving one little reason to seek another musically enchanting prospective.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful! May 3 2004
By dustin
Format:Audio CD
This is a beautiful soundtrack. It goes from piano solo music to accordion music to 50s (maybe?) style French and English music. Very relaxing! The piano solo music is really cool too except its really high quality paper so its kind of expensive. I sometimes find myself just sitting there when I should be doing homework being swept away to France! Thats how awesome the CD is! Buy it!
