Incidentally, one of the poster quotes (from the Telegraph) reads 'Good Bye Lenin! recalls Amelie ...'. Well, not really, except in the broadest terms - it's about reality/unreality, and it has subtitles. But it does have very similar (maybe even identical, I haven't checked) music. That noodly, pseudo-minimalist piano thing that we first heard Nyman using in The Piano. Now, I love minimal music in general, but this stuff has become too formulaic, too flattening (witness the effect it seems to have made on the Telegraph's reviewer). An echo of those (necessarily) formulaic live piano improvisations you had with silent films?
