Philip Seymour Hoffman,
Michel Legrand composed the first score for this film, but it was rejected in favor of a score by John Barry, aided by Don Walker. When it was first aired on U.S. television, the CBS network had Barry and Walker's score replaced with a completely new score by Stu Phillips. Only the music by Barry and Walker is heard on the film today. See more »
In my opinion, this film is highly underestimated. This is a very well shot film on beautiful locations. It is as if Antonioni was it's photographer. And another comparison: Stanley Kubrick made 'Eyes wide shut'a few years back (also underestimated, als usual with his films), but 'the Appointment' definitely has the same intensity, mystery and erotic tension as 'Eyes wide shut'. Both films are so quiet and intense, I only wish there were more films like this.
