Music composer Edy Lan used Michael Giacchino (composer of "Lost" and almost everything done by JJ Abrams) as one of his main inspiration for the music score (Giacchino is one of the favorites of both Lan and Ezban, who both love and admire how his music can be immensely creepy and effectively touching at the same time). Other references for the score of this film included composers like John Williams, Bernard Herrman, Hans Zimmer and Tom Tykwer. The music was recorded in Prague with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, and then mixed in L.A. at the Afterhours Studios. As Isaac Ezban as always stated that he's a big fan of music in film, and as he believed this story needed a great epic music, the music was one of the departments of this film that got more budget and time.

I walked out of the theater saying, "That was amazing. Just amazing." My family agreed and we talked about it that night and the next morning, figuring it out, exchanging what we remembered and admiring the creative staging and story telling. I think it was well thought out and the story told well, surprises that I then realized were logical. I thought the acting very good, especially as the actors changed extremely over time. We were still a little confused about the conclusion's explanation, but I think we understood most of the logic -- it helped to have multiple people discussing it and remembering pieces. When the old guys start talking, you need to listen.
