New from Ennio Morricone
4-Dec-2007 - Digitmovies has released a rarity by Ennio Morricone: the complete original motion picture soundtrack from the 1980 movie Uomini E No, directed by Valentino Orsini. The movie is based on the Elio Vittorini novel issued in 1945. It tells the story of Enne 2, commander of a partisan group that performs terrorist actions against the Nazis in Milan. Ennio Morricone has composed and conducted an orchestral score based on two main themes. The first one is a mysterious march with brass and percussions ostinato. The second theme is a sad and melting love theme with classic flavour. These two different themes represent perfectly the two faces of war.
From Digitmovies comes also the IV volume in the series dedicated to the original soundtracks for the Italian Police movies genre: Milano Odia: La Polizia Non Può Sparare with music composed by Ennio Morricone and conducted by Bruno Nicolai. It is one of the milestones of the Italian Police movies. The movie slightly goes away from the genre, since the “hard cop” character is not involved this time, while a dangerous criminal, performed by Tomas Milian, is the protagonist. Morricone has created a symphonic score that alternates between dramatic, percussive moments and other romantic ones. The music is at the same time nostalgic and mysterious given by the frequent use of the sax.
