Yentl is the first film directed by Barbra Streisand (1983), becoming the first woman in history who directs, produces, writes and stars in a feature film, that it also meant for her the Golden Globe for Best Director, making history again by becoming the first woman to win this award. Apart from this, she won the Golden Globe for Best Picture.
Of course, she also put her voice to the soundtrack, a true gem with music by Michel Legrand and lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman.
For me, this is the best soundtrack I've ever heard, its inspirational lyrics, the wonderful music and the heavenly and breathtaking Streisand's voice, make a combination hard to beat.
Here you have it on videos I put together with the still captures i made from the movie, except "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" which is included on the last video, the live version taken from "The Concert" (1994) ... where you can also enjoy the Medley that she made of "Will Someone Ever Look At Me That Way?" and "A Piece Of Sky" performing an absolutely stunning duet with herself.
No more to say, just...Enjoy this gem!
THIS IS ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS
THE WAY HE MAKES ME FEEL
WILL SOMEONE EVER LOOK AT ME THAT WAY?
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
A PIECE OF SKY
MEDLEY FROM THE CONCERT (1994)
