Point of No Return (1993) Soundtrack
A unique soundtrack in a number of different ways. Hans Zimmer's evocative score is featured
on the first four tracks, while Nina Simone, the "High Priestess of Soul," delivers on the next five tracks.
Zimmer's music is pulse-pounding at times, hauntingly moody at others.
The main theme, threaded throughout the first four tracks, will linger in your mind.

Born in North Carolina in 1933, Nina Simone's immense musical talent was apparent at an early age.
She attended the Julliard School of Music, and through her protest music was a pioneer of the civil rights movement.
Sickened by the racism in American society, she moved to Europe. She is known as the "High Priestess of Soul,"
but her music is an unique mix of soul, blues and jazz. In the film Point of No Return she is Maggie's (Bridget Fonda) inspiration.
