The Guys [Original Score]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
The Guys -- a film based on the true story of a journalist who helps a New York City fire chief overcome the grief of losing firemen in the World Trade Center attacks by co-writing their eulogies -- features an appropriately somber score driven by a spare piano theme and augmented by strings, woodwinds, and Mary Fahl's quietly haunting voice.

Indeed, it's tempting to say that the score is too restrained; the piano theme that winds through "My Beautiful, Gleaming...," "Bill," and "Are You OK?" can sound monotonous outside of the film's context. However, the score is intended as an understated counterpoint to the film's heavy emotions, and ultimately it makes the music that much more moving.
