What about the wonderful piano piece he plays, singing in French? who is the composer?
The track he plays on the piano is 'asking you' on the soundtrack but naturally the words are not included on the soundtrack, musically it was composed by hans but the words were composed by peter weir.
I think the commenter from 8/2/06 was referring to "For Bronte" which actually is on the soundtrack, but as with most soundtracks, when you hear the music "pure"-with nothing distracting you such as action or foley sounds, it sounds almost unrecognizable. Very often only samplings of a song make it into the movie. I was most disappointed that some agreement wasn't made to allow the Enya tracks to be at covered (at least) on the CD-it spoiled the experience for me. Overall the music is great.
I found some interesting music references in this movie (like The Holiday). Gerard Depardieu's character is a composer, so in a scene he plays '9am Central Park' on piano... and he often hums Zimmer's theme, eventually he sent his(Zimmer's?) messy handwriting score of that theme to a girl... :D
By the way, it seems my favorite track 'Greenhouse' wasn't used in the movie :(
The best song isn't on the Green Card CD -- that is, the contemplative love theme that begins to appear toward the end of the movie is missing from the CD. This was a great disappointment to me, since I had bought the CD just to hear this musical moment. **** I'm heartbroken.
