Just saw this great film at the Starz Denver International Film Center. The soundtrack is wonderful and we would like to buy it. Any suggestions? I would recommend the movie for those who enjoy Italian cinema. My husband is a jazz pianist and loved the film. There are some great early scenes where the two friends attend a jazz workshop in Umbria one summer. An Italian gentleman introduced the film and described it as a "very personal" film. Although it does not cover heavy subjects like the environment, politics and the like, it touches your heart, he explained. One of the most impressive aspects of the film was the convincing way in which the "musician characters" appeared to actually be playing their instruments. They were also very well cast and quite charming.
