Vinci Film Review
speaking? You're going to need a Hans Zimmer quality note
parlayer to pull off this mega-ly anticipated film's score...and
Mr. Zimmer, as usual, does not disappoint. In fact so perfectly
mysterious and gothic hued are his the creshendoing masterpieces,
so layered and deep are these little petit fours of sound, you
almost don't even have to see the film - though I dare
you not to. The notes are rich and full and otherworldly - just
phenomenal. Director Ron Howard is taking on one of the most read
books in the world and if his visual interpretation matches the
audio created here, dear Ron shall be adding a few little gold
men to his armoire of artifacts.
first track, 'Dies Mercurii I Martius,' is punctuated with that cello of Romania
styled lure. It invites you into the mystery; taking you into your imagination
and you're off. The following tracks continue to inspire textured thoughts, and
flowing visions intermingled with a sense of unknown - music is puppeting your
you arrive at track 5, 'Ad Arcana,' you understand why Zimmer is considered one
of the world's most coveted composers. This is no dime store piano tinkler - this
is a true musical master and he's not even sporting a Ben Franklinesque wig or
speaking with decidedly abrupt Vs - though he is a German born chap (hmm).
7 'Salvete Virgines,' which is not in the film, is itself like a kind of holy
grail. It has a full chorus and chanting and immediately propels the listener
towards nirvana. It's as rich as a succulently sinful full fat dessert prepared
behind handcarved marble doors within a deeply hidden off-the-blueprint section
of the catacombed Vatican, in a secret kitchen-of-the-elite used by the Godly
garbed to cheat on sweeties during Lent. Bravo.
8, Daniel's 9th Cipher,' is like a post coital release and helps you unwind from
all the fury of notes via subtle layers of soft sounds and notes hover about and
Martin Tillman's cello tinkles your senses.
Da Vinci Code soundtrack is a work of art that would make demur little Mona Lisa
bare teeth in a wide toothy smile. Zimmer has raised the bar. You must ad this
immediately to your musical collection - even if you're not what you're friends
behind your back would call a composer geek (ahem).
