I feel like the only one that's ever seen this film and loves the score.

Anyone else?

Thank you for knowing about this film meegle. I saw it in the theater when it came out and was really taken by the film (read the book, it's even better) and it's score. I re-watched it not long ago and it holds up as a different kind of thriller with a flawed yet interesting heroine and the music suits the chilly Nordic setting.

Yes! I'm not alone!

Love the score and love (if I remember the story correctly) that it can be classified as science-fiction!

Sorry but I do not remember any of the music in it but I do remember seeing it. The reason why I remember watching it is because it was the first movie I saw after the death of my brother. Actually my local DVD store`s owner let me see it for free. That was such a nice gesture by him.

I saw it in Denmark on one of my visits there. My danish friend, who lived in Odense at the time put me in the picture, saying the story was well known 'locally' due to it's authorship, etc, etc, etc. It's a home-grown eco-warrior story. Maybe that helps to explain the heavy slant in top-billed names taking part at that time. Yeah, it's very much regarded as an ethical, rather than a science-fiction tale.

As for the music . . . I'd have to watch it again.

I saw the film on video when it was released. Nothing special about film or score. The score could have benefitted from less sound design and more themes.

I saw it in the theater when it came out and was really taken by the film...and it's score.

Me, too. I snagged a bunch of Smilla bookmarks at Borders around then and still use them today. They're my favorites, with just her eyes peeking out of the book.
