The Lover....original by Gabriel Yared

Gabriel Yared is a master of cinematic soundscapes. From Betty Blue to The English Patient, he has created unforgettable (film) music with real emotional depth. The Lover soundtrack is no exception. From the paso doble scene with Helene, to the nightclubs, to the beautiful tango of Habanera, he has successfully evoked colonial Saigon with the sense of loss, memory, and displacement present in the Duras text. The recurring theme is as haunting and evocative as any work he has done.

The music gives the film life and is very powerful. This soundtrack is very meticulous and is an unforgettable masterpiece.
