Easy story but surprising music
14 March 2004 | by butzi-1See all my reviews

Anybody who looks at this film, will say what a unimaginative story, nervetheless at leat a bit entertaining.... But in a contrast to this, the soundtrack is a very special one. The music is by Randy Kerber / Sound Design by Dane Tracks. Singing composition and additional voice is by Avant Garde diva Joan La Barbara. Her voice is uttering in a peculiar way. Not human, maybe angelic?! - Usely angels in films sing like saloon sopranos from the 19th century in very kitschy manner. The music in the film is very kitschy, too. But the voice of La Barbara ist relativating the rest of the film.
