Product Description

Product Description

V For Vendetta is the blockbuster follow up to the 1.6 billion grossing Matrix franchise from the same director/producer team: The Wachowski Brothers and Joel Silver. It's a futuristic thriller starring Natlie Portman. The soundtrack features the riveting music by Dario Marianelli, the 2006 Oscar TM nominee for Pride and Prejudice and features three key songs: Julie London's breathy classic 'Cry Me A River', 'Bird Gerhl' from the critically acclaimed Antony and The Johnsons and Cat Power's slinky cover of the Lou Reed song 'I Found A Reason'. Astralwerks. 2006.


Hot off two critical successes (Pride & Prejudice and The Brothers Grimm), Dario Marianelli went all dark and moody with his score for James McTeigue's dystopian thriller V for Vendetta. Marianelli occasionally bursts out with powerful cues such as "Governments Should Be Afraid of Their People," but he mostly focuses on building a sense of pervasive dread and growing tension. Interspersed among his cues are three songs which in the film are part of V's personal jukebox of "forbidden" tunes; all three are intimate and lovely, and it's striking to see how well contemporary artists like Cat Power and Antony & the Johnsons sit next to Julie London's 1950s croon. Finally, many viewers of the movie have been struck by the powerful setting of the final scene to Tchaikovsky's memorable 1812 Overture. It's hard not to be. That piece is actually incorporated in "Knives and Bullets (and Cannons Too)"; the track starts with a nice-enough dramatic build-up by Marianelli, but when the overture (originally written to celebrate the Russian victory against Napoleon's troops) comes in, marking the disc's final two minutes, its sheer power and grandiose bravura make everything that preceded sound diffident. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, great soundtrack June 17 2009
By L. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love this movie. What is it about a man in a mask and cape that really turns me on? And the fact that the mask is frozen and yet the actor still manages to convey extreme emotions...incredible!

So of course I had to buy the soundtrack, and it is wonderful, very evocative of the movie. My favorite pieces are Valerie and Evey Reborn, followed by The Dominoes Fall (also favorite scenes of mine from the movie). There is only one track I consistently skip, and that is Bird Gurhl by Anthony and the Johnsons. Just hate the quavering vocal!
5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Having Aug. 29 2007

I have watched V for Vendetta many, many times and was seduced by the soundtrack. Now that I have this recording (and have listened to it often) I feel it is well worth having as it lets me very easily recall scenes from the film as the music is playing. A great blend of instrumental and vocal pieces. This CD has become another of my classic soundtrack favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid soundtrack Jan. 3 2007

I enjoyed this soundtrack immensely, it's one of the few that I keep in my CD player, and MP3 player all the time. The score is one of the better ones, and the songs are great. My only complaint is it's not the entire score or song list.
