To Live Twice
Original Score


Composer: Arnau Bataller and Simon Smith
Label: MovieScore Media
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 06 September 2019

MovieScore Media releases the music to the Spanish comedy drama To Live Twice (Vivir dos Veces) with music by Arnau Bataller and Simon Smith. Directed by Maria Ripoll, the film follows a man named Emilio, his daughter Julia and his granddaughter Blanca on a crazy road trip in search of true love. With Emilio on the brink of losing his memory, the small family decides to make the patriarch happy one last time by undertaking this journey to in the hopes of helping him find the lost love of his youth...

The soundtrack to To Live Twice is a sweet, intimate affair. There is one main theme for Margarita that runs throughout the album's 13 tracks (32 min, 18 sec). For me, this was the score's main highlight, along with the touching 'Final Embrace'.

There's a little something for everyone. From piano based tracks ('I Don't Like Lentils') to more quirky pieces of music, like the 'To Live Twice' theme. Beautiful melancholic tracks like 'Math Is a Language' give away to more upbeat pieces ('What a Family (Part 1)' and '(Part 2)').

While not an essential purchase, there are some interesting themes here that should at least appeal to fans of the movie, if not a wider section of the soundtrack collector community.
