Motorcycle Diaries

I defy anyone not to find this remarkable soundscape anything short of stunning.

Don’t be put off by occational sorrow this soundtrack has many wonderful inspiring passages.

Gustavo Santaolalla’s stunning mix that moves between bombo drums and the charango vs. the strings, as if they were the characters and the orchestra the landscape. Then we hear the electric guitar chord, like the time passing, giving a time context, actuality and rebel. It is appropriate for telling the story of such a controversial personality, traveling around a landscape without words to describe: South America. A great reminder to check out these Cuban filmmakers too.
