One of the most visually pleasing films I've seen. I really think the original audio attributed to the atmosphere of it all; a little hesitant about watching it with this score.
This film was a masterpiece before - one of my all-time faves, and with a beautiful Aermenian-inflected soundtrack.
Jaar's music radically transforms the film, and it's a powerful and thrilling experience.
