Finally, the songs from a great movie Papillon.. You will love the songs, as they bring you back to a pretty good movie. The title song
is a special theme. You will not be disappointed. Bravo...
Un Grand Papillon
Goldsmith created with this score both marvelously charming and frightfully energetic moods. The main theme a lush expression of French friendship and determination, yet the darker moments are just as effective evocations. The final song, with Nicoletta's husky vocals and Goldsmith's intensifying key changes, based on the main theme, is a fabulous conclusion to a poignant album.

I've waited for years for this soundtrack to come out, and the sound is great. From the rich and haunting title theme, to the soft and quiet moments on the island, to the tense scenes of escape, this soundtrack not only captures the flow and spirit of the movie, but stands alone as a quality piece of music. Listeners of soundtracks and fans of Jerry Goldsmith will not be disappointed.
