Hauntingly Beautiful - with a Shocking Finale!!!
15 September 2019 | by lizarmstrong-60293See all my reviews

"The Song of Names", directed by the wonderful François Girard, surpassed all of my expectations! The story is about the relationship two "brothers", and how that relationship changes over the years as the mystery unfolds. The score, by the great Howard Shore, expertly showcases the film's haunting, mysterious tone. Acting, directing and cinematography, to name a few, were all brilliant. Certainly worth a watch, even if just for the magnificent violin solos! The film catches your attention from the very first scene and leaves you wanting more after the shocking finale. I would recommend this film to musicians, as well as anyone who loves a good character-based mystery!
