I read something earlier today about "Brave" where Patrick Doyle (the composer chosen for the musical score) said this:

"I want to make it accessible but to honour the Celtic traditions if I can. Its a real fable set in Scotland. I could possibly use the bagpipes as a drone or something that gives atmosphere, but I will resist instantly using them until I see whats going on ... they are extremely loud."

Really??? You HAVE to have bagpipes, for Pete's sake! Of course, if the producers et al were being true to history, they wouldn't have bagpipes, as the movie is set in the 10th century. But, then again, they wouldn't have kilts, either. I'm just thankful they got a Scottish actress for the lead voice (after considering Reese Witherspoon...that would have been a bad decision!)

A more recent movie representation of the bagpipes:



I wonder how much they paid a good Scotsman like Sir Thomas Sean Connery to play a character with a name like Flanagan and say the line: "It takes an Irishman to play the pipes." unsure.gif laugh.gif

A little history on the real Lord Lovat and his Piper, Bill Millin, from the clip from the movie "The Longest Day".

From: Simon Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat @ Wikipedia

QUOTE
Brigadier Simon Christopher Joseph Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat and 4th Baron Lovat DSO, MC, TD (9 July 1911 in Beaufort Castle, Inverness, Scotland 16 March 1995 in Beauly, Inverness-shire, Scotland ) was the 25th Chief of the Clan Fraser and a prominent British Commando during the Second World War. His friends called him "Shimi" Lovat, an anglicised version of his name in the Scottish Gaelic language. His clan referred to him as MacShimidh, his Gaelic patronym, meaning Son of Simon. Simon is the favoured family name for the Chiefs of Clan Fraser. While legally the 15th Lord, he is commonly known as the 17th Lord Lovat. He was also 4th Baron Lovat in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.


QUOTE
...Lord Lovat instructed his personal piper, Bill Millin, to pipe the commandos ashore, in defiance of specific orders not to allow such an action in battle.  When Private Millin demurred, citing the regulations, he recalled later, Lord Lovat replied: Ah, but thats the English War Office. You and I are both Scottish, and that doesnt apply.
QUOTE
William "Bill" Millin (14 July 1922 17 August 2010), commonly known as Piper Bill, was personal piper to Simon Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat, commander of 1 Special Service Brigade at D-Day. Born in Regina, Canada on 14 July 1922 to a father of Scottish origin who returned to Glasgow as a policeman when William was three. He grew up and went to school in the Shettleston area of the city. He joined the Territorial Army in Fort William, where his family had moved, and played in the pipe bands of the Highland Light Infantry and the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders before volunteering as a commando and training with Lovat at Achnacarry along with French, Dutch, Belgian, Polish, Norwegian, Polish and Czechoslovakian troops.


QUOTE
Millin is best remembered for playing the pipes whilst under fire during the D-Day landing in Normandy.Pipers had traditionally been used in battle by Scottish and Irish soldiers however the use of bagpipes was restricted to rear areas by the time of the Second World War by the British Army. Lovat, however, ignored these orders and ordered Millin, aged 21, to play. When Private Millin demurred, citing the regulations, he recalled later, Lord Lovat replied: Ah, but thats the English War Office. You and I are both Scottish, and that doesnt apply. He played "Hielan' Laddie" and "The Road to the Isles" as his comrades fell around him on Sword Beach. Millin states that he later talked to captured German snipers who claimed they did not shoot him because they thought he was crazy.

Update-yes there are bagpipes. Actually they have a video parody of all those K-Tel comemrcials from way back but featuring bagpipe tunes. You can find it on youtube-its called Freedom Broch
Actually the bagpiping in the movie was played by several members of the Red Hot Chili Pipers.

The website has a ton of features on it including downloads, trailers, products,and music samples from the entire soundtrack which, I believe, Amazon hasn't posted yet. Several songs are by Julie Fowlis. There also some fun games on the website including an archery contest and Highland Games.

So just to wet your appetite here is the video that came out today

Ok, I went and saw it and loved it. Music was good, computer animation wasw excellent, and there was plenty of kilts and other funny moments (as in how do we get down from the tower). I did feel it needed to breath just a bit and some of the featurettes that were online aren't in the movie (such as the father and daughter lessons and the triplets reenactment of the father winning the mothers hand). But these will probably be on the DVD when it is released so no worries. Would be nice to see a part two to this-lots of potential out there for good scottish tales.

Sadly I was the only one in a kilt. Should have gone up to Duluth were they had a pipe and drum band and highland dancers out front. Still, there's always hope for Brave 2.

So what did you think of it?
