The Man Who Shook The Hand - MOVIE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL Review

A very nice review from the e-Journal MOVIE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL to Ruy Folguera’s soundtrack for the film “The Man Who Shook The Hand Of Vicente Fernandez”, spaghetti western released in 2012, written and directed by Elia Petridis and Ernest Borgnine’s last movie.

"It is inevitable that comparisons will be made between this and other scores that contain a western flavour, in my opinion Ruy Folugera has written a soundtrack that is on the same level as some of the works of Fidenco, Cipriani and Ferrio. His music  also contains hints of Morricone, Micalizzi and Pregadio when we are thinking of the original spaghetti scores. It also has affiliations with THE MEXICAN and SUNDOWN when thinking of soundtracks that have paid homage to the spaghetti western, plus it has a pleasing and attractive side to it that is not dissimilar toALL THE PRETTY HORSES. So it’s a soundtrack that will please all, well worth checking out… available on amazon, iTunes and amoeba records on vinyl."
