Mainly shot in Guilin, China, The Painted Veil emphasized a touching love story in front of the beautiful backdrop. Kitty (Played by Naomi Watts) and Walter (Played by Erward Norton) were ordinary couple who just got married and moved to China. An affair between Kitty and Townsend (Played by Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts’s boyfriend in real life, as the gossip said) almost destroyed the marriage and there is totally no romance from the beginning.
I even virtually agreed that Kitty and Walter might as well file for a divorce…
After Kitty and Walter moved to countryside, where Walter volunteered to assist with cholera epidemic, things began to change. I realized how life can change a person’s perspective. Kitty saw the gentle and noble side of Walter; and this helped her to ponder how she can contribute to the villagers and children in such difficult time.
The story is plain and simple, but I’d still give a thumb-up (Changed my mind, make that TWO please!) because the way how this story is presented, throbs deep into my heart.
Ahdoe.com will introduce you two classics that are representatives in this movie:
Trois Gnossiennes by Erik Satie, a French Musician and Pianist. Not too difficult, give it a try!
It’s ok, I know there is only one page. You can download the PDF version of Trois Gnossiennes piano sheet music at ahdoe.com as well.
Another song to come…it’s A La Claire Fontaine (What? A French riddle?)
Yes, it is, but with brand new expression by Laure Shang (尚雯婕), a talented Chinese Singer, who also worked as a French translator in Shanghai.
A La Claire Fontaine Piano Sheet Music
Again, I thought you might be interested in a full version of A La Claire Fontaine Piano Score. Please help yourself with the download, and don’t worry, it’s free. I welcome any comments about it and it helps me to improve a lot. (Thanks Dude~)
“When you asked whether you are in love with a person, you are already in love…” Quoted by Ahdoe, inspired by The Painted Veil
