A very inquisitive eleven year-old with leukemia decides to go through his bucket list, a journey of discovery that proves to be musically enervating in the hands of Cesar Benito with the WAYS TO LIVE FOREVER soundtrack.
With styles that are understandably all over the place as his imagination runs wild, Benito enthusiastically conveys a thirst for rhythmic life instead of wallowing in the maudlin. Eccentric percussion, perky horn comedy and a gentle piano solos all contribute to a welcome sense of whimsy that doesn’t neglect the inevitable. And while the big symphonic moments arrive with Kleenex-grabbing flourish, much of FOREVER’s melodic emotions have a moving, intimate restraint to them. While this might be a score about making the most of a short life, Benito’s eclectic, thematically bittersweet gem of a score shows a composer with much promise lying ahead of him.
