A montage of scenes from Stanley Kubrick’s movie “Barry Lyndon”, based on a short and rather frivolous novella by “Vanity Fair” author William Makepeace Thackeray. Kubrick built it up into a gorgeous biography of a rags-to-riches-back-to-tragedy story of a life, with stunning scenes of rural England. I have not seen it since I first saw it as a university student, with my girl-friend (I think she fell asleep), but I’ve never forgotten it.

This piece of music just haunts me since I saw this video a few days ago. Can’t get it out of my head. It matches the scenes so perfectly, although I don’t think all these scenes had this music as background – it’s a montage, but an excellent one.

Here’s a scene which accompanies the music originally – right at the end of the movie.
