The soundtrack for the 2002 TV miniseries “Doctor Zhivago” is as good as the film itself. The pinnacle of the score is the first track (which is basically the love theme and permeates the entire story), but Einaudi still manages to compose brilliant music for the 4 hour drama which unfolds on screen. The chemistry between Mr. Matheson & Ms. Knightley is undeniable. Unlike the classic 1965 movie, you feel and sense that there’s more than mutual & sexual attraction which pulls Lara & Zhivago closer together amidst the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Sam Niell is an excellent & complex Komarovsky, a villain’s villain. I also like the tracks “Farewell To The Past,” “Love Is A Mystery,” & “Kolechko.” However, it’s “Zhivago” that really is the dominant theme of the score, and “Kolechko” really pulls into perspective the tragedy, heartache & loss of the Russian Revolution. Very evocative of the horrors of war and the evil in man’s heart. I highly recommend the soundtrack AND the movie. BUY them. They’re worth every penny.
