Arvo Pärt's Gravity

Some years ago Tom Tykwer's Heaven  (2002) inspired my visual and aural awe. Tykwer reworked Krzysztof Kieślowsk posthumous script into his own masterpiece starring Cate Blanchett and Giovanni Ribissi . After watching the trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's recent Gravity, I heard again the haunting soundtrack from Heaven, Arvo Pärt's Spiegel im Spiegel for Violin and Piano. The two films could be understood as mirrors which echo each others' deep humanism. Both evoke the experience of recovering a long forgotten but essential love of life. In any case, these soundtracks have been my writing's inspiration today.
