A Little Romance
There are so many amazing soundtracks out there. Being a lover of musicals-on-film means that most movies I love to watch have an incredible score. But one of the soundtracks that continues to impress me is the soundtrack of A Little Romance, George Roy Hill’s 1979 film about two 13 year old geniuses falling in love and running away from Paris to Venice.
The film uses some of Vivaldi’s most charming pieces, as well as amazing original compositions. I especially like the opening theme, a happy light jazz piece which borrows heavily from the Baroque era. Also the piece of music that is played during the bicycle race scene. Golden!
I’d watch this film just for music, except that there are many other reasons to watch it too, like the beautiful locations, the incredible intelligence of the kids, the clever use of footage from other films and the 1979 computer, which can only be used by men in lab coats.
A few years ago, I found the soundtrack on record!
