Glenn Keane’s Duet is probably one of the most perfect marriages of music and image you’ll ever find. The film is the story of a boy and a girl from cradle to adulthood in three minutes. It’s the sort of thing that would have made Chuck Jones proud.
While I know everyone has been going on about Keane’s simply line work, for me the real joy is the soundtrack. As good as the images are they wouldn’t have the emotional power, they wouldn’t have the kick without the glorious score that they are married to. Likewise I don’t think the score would be as good without the images to play against.
I’m guessing there is a good chance this will win an Oscar.
