Storyline

Based on Terry Pratchett's Novel. On Discworld (a world carried by four elephants standing on a huge turtle in space), a small girl, Susan Sto Helit, has got a major problem. Her grandfather is Death, who wants to forget that he has just "processed" his adopted daughter and her husband who was Susan's mother and father as this is causing him great grief and Death is a person that can remember everything, much to his chagrin. Susan find herself pressed into taking over Death's "duty" but finds that she is falling in love with an elf/human, Imp, who is slowly being taken over by a kind of "musical" force that is forcing Imp and his friends to play Rock Music to the Discworld. The Rock Music is proving to be a great success, but it has got plans for Imp and everybody wanting to play it and it is up to Susan, the head of the wizards, the Archchancellor and Death (that is, if he can be found and made to remember who/what he is.) to stop it before it conquers the entire Discworld...

Death takes some time off (possible spoilers ahead)
31 October 2004 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Death, with capital D, comes to a turning point on his existence. He's adopted daughter and her husband die in a cart accident. Death begins to wonder what is this all about. How do people forget?

So, as Death starts to prowl around the Disc someone has to carry on the business. Only one fitting the bill is Susan, niece of Death. And she's not very keen to carry on the family business.

At the same time young bard gets possessed by the Soul of Music. He begins to live for music. And Susan has to do something about this before all is too late.

In "Soul Music" everything is little bit better that it was in "Wyrd Sisters". Animation is a bit smoother, music is helluva lot better with a parodied touch of rock'n'roll music. All in all "Soul Music" is much more solid piece of work than the first Discworld movie "Wyrd Sisters"

As it has been some time since I've read the book itself, I cannot say how closely the movie follows the main plot of the book, but as it was with "Wyrd Sister" I recall that "Soul Music" is pretty much straight forwarded take from the book with out any additions or major changes, so fans of the series should feel comfortable with this movie. Atmosphere is just correct and places, especially Ankh-morpork looks absolutely correct.

Voice acting is as solid as it was on the first movie, with great Christopher Lee doing a fine job as Death.

All in all I can give "Soul Music" a solid number of 8
