All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
In such films as Last Tango In Paris and The Last Emperor, director Bernardo Bertolucci has taken special care with the soundtrack music, resulting in albums that stood on their own.

Still, apart from the film, this remains a miscellaneous collection.

    Missing Songs

    After watching Stealing Beauty I was excited to get the soundtrak. However upon receiving it I found that not all the songs of the movie were included in the CD. Of course Murphy's Law kicked in and the songs I really liked were no where to be found. Dissappointing.

    This CD is a "STEALING BEAUTY"

    This a super collection. Very emotional and mellow, very good relaxing sounds and voices. I highly recommend this. Soundtracks usually have the best collection of works and this one once again proves to be a STEAL.
