La Vie en...Gold

Oh to be in the golden vistas of sunny Provence living the French dream. <<La vie heureuse>>

I heart this piece of music. From the film 'A Good Year.' 

I love the possibility of it, the certainty, how it mimics the soaring of a happy heart... Most specifically how the orchestral waltzing bits (life in Provence) are in marked contrast to the occasional interruption of 'reality's' (life in London) hesitant harried tones. Bit like the heart versus the head; life as it could be compared to what it is; sunny vis-a-vis dull; gold glinting against grey; a complete overwhelming of certainty for a way of life versus a cynical complacency to it. Now that's wisdom.
