High Fidelity

From the novel by Nick Hornby the film by Stephen Frears, starring John Cusack and Iben Hjejle (nothing so exotic, she's a Danish actress) plus Lisa Bonet , Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jack Black as other main characters (Marie, Charlie and Barry). The love for music is one of the main themes of this movie, accordingly with the novel. And the other main theme is the desire to remain "forever young". Not unusual themes, but the structure of the film (and of the novel) is original, all around the obsession to make a "best of ..." about everything.

On Music-Graffiti website you can read the comments, the soundtracks listing of the film and also the "soundtrack" of the original novel of Nick Hornby (61 songs, plus many images taken directly by the film.
