Bad Education (La Mala Educación) (Original Soundtrack)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Pedro Almod?var's noir-ish comedy-romance-Catholic school pedophilia drama Bad Education benefits greatly from the haunting and achingly beautiful score from longtime collaborator Alberto Iglesias. A somber blend of classical, choral, and Hitchcock-era Bernard Herrmann, the Spanish composer's reverent compositions both aggravate and diffuse Almod?var's controversial images, bringing an elegance to the film's darker moments and a somber beauty to its sweeter ones -- Iglesias builds a surprisingly secular sounding piano-led collage around Rossini's "Kyrie." Like his flamenco-infused score for the director's award-winning Talk to Her, Bad Education is as jarring, ...

November 16, 2004 CD New in new packaging. Originally released: 2004. New, factory sealed. Informed by a vintage Hollywood production sheen and flashback-fueled, ... identity-questioning melodramatics worthy of Hitchcock, Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar's sexually-charged film was quickly hailed as a mature masterpiece. The film's classic Hollywood conceits are deep-rooted, and Iberian composer Alberto Iglesias reinforces the film's often retro mood via a brooding, classically oriented score with an ear towards history.

Like his flamenco-infused score for the director's award-winning Talk to Her, Bad Education is as jarring, enlightening, romantic, and sinister as the film itself, resulting in one of the year's finest moments in film music.
