Got this disc just because it was an SACD. Boy, what a surprise. I like the music and the sound.
Highly recommended.

Performance:   Sonics:    
I purchased this from Be aware that none of the website listings ( or actually mention the fact that it is in SACD format so make sure you don't end up buying the RBCD version.
The SACD version comes in a box with a 72 page booklet which is in french.
I have to agree with the other reviewer that it is a lovely film score although alot of the pieces are more incedental music than songs - still very nice. The soundtrack opens and closes with the same song - Sinead O'Conner opens with 'a new born child' and her singing is beautiful and emotional as always and Sandrine Piau closes again with a beautiful version in french. The last track is 7 minutes long and Sandrine Piau does not start singing until after a short break in the song mid way through.
Sonics, well its beautifully recorded but there are no technical details. All 3 layers are excellent but the best is the multichannel 5.1 SACD.
I'd also highly recommend it.
