this thing: not that.
'No. 3: Sous le dôme épais (Flower Duet) from Lakme, by Delibes
Already well known, Delibes’s Flower Duet was made ever-increasingly popular by British Airway’s use of the work in a fairly recent advertising campaign. This classic piece features a duet between a coloratura soprano and and a mezzo-soprano.
Hear Delibes’s Flower Duet in the movies The American President, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, and Meet the Parents. '
It was used in a GOOD film
A GOOD one
that's not it
someone tells me what film this was used in
the flower duet
might be my favourite game ever.
Definitely. I stopped playing Shenmue II about halfway through, just because I realised that, if I continued, someday it would all end and I'd have nothing left. And also because I got a new TV and I couldn't be arsed to tune my Dreamcast in.
i stopped playing it halfway through aswell because my friend wanted his game back and then i never got round to playing it again, weird. Shenmue I though was amazing, ised to play it with a friend taking shifts to work through the days n such, who knew driving forklifts could be so much fun
for me is the EXACT point when i lost interest in computer games. such an insanely dull concept and so far removed from the simple unadulterated fun that had hooked me in in the first place.
I want an answer by the morning
it does sound quite final fantasyish. And it is a games programme...
But Im sure I recognize it from a film.
it's a famous classical piece, i wouldn't have recognised it if it was from final fantasy.
I think thats the one.
Walt Disney had planned to use Clair de Lune for a segment of the 1940 film, Fantasia, but the sequence was deleted from the film at 70% completion because of Fantasia's excessive length. The animated Clair De Lune sequence, which illustrates the flow of the music with the movements of swans, was later restored from a workprint in 1996 and included on a 2000 Fantasia DVD box set.
In Federico Fellini's 1983 imaginative fable E la nave va (USA title: And the Ship Sails On) Clair de Lune is played in many scenes.
Nick Nolte's character plays a portion of Clair de Lune at a piano in the Paul Mazursky film Down and Out in Beverly Hills while boasting to Jenny Whiteman that he "...opened with this piece back when [he] toured the concert circuit..."
Clair de Lune is used as a theme in the 1997 film Seven Years in Tibet, specifically as the music box first given to the Dalai Lama.
Clair de Lune is used in David Fincher's The Game in the restaurant scene and contains a hint to Christine's real name.
An orchestral arrangement of Clair de Lune by Lucien Cailliet is featured in the concluding part of the 2001 film Ocean's Eleven. The solo piano arrangement can also be heard, albeit extremely quietly, in the background of the scene where the characters meet for the first time in Reuben's backyard.
A solo piano arrangement is used on the soundtrack of "Man on Fire." Another orchestral arrangement is found in the film The Right Stuff.
Different portions of Suite Bergamasque are used in the Japanese film All About Lily Chou-Chou.
Also portions of Suite Bergamasque have been found in a Japanese drama by the name of "Orange Days."
Most recently, Clair de Lune has been used in a Chanel commercial starring Nicole Kidman, as well as an NFL Network commercial starring Chad Johnson.
More information of the usage of Claude Debussy's music could be found in the Internet Movie Data Base.
Im sure ive sen it somewhere else.
This is infuriating!
Frankly I'm amazed no one said it sooner. For anyone who has seen the film Dog Soldiers, it is featured in that aswell.
