    I Loved this film! Bravo!!

    I really was very moved by the song played during the final credits.
    I believe it is called, These Are the Words.
    Where can I find it? The lyrics? A recording??

  2. M. O'Connell says:

    It is Patti Smith’s song. I bought the movie sound track on iTunes ($9.99) to get it. Lots of bonus tracks. Worth it.

  3. Diane Popalis says:

    I bought the soundtrack album on iTunes but the Patti Smith song These are the Words did not download. What is up?

  4. Cynthia Sequoia says:

    who was the singer in the mosque, toward the end of the film, accompanied by a young girl? Hauntingly beautiful!

    • Allison Snyder says:

      I found that powerful, too. I’d be interested to know, as well. Anyone know how to purchase the scores of some of these songs?

        Hi Cynthia, hi Allison,

        I happened to come across the full-lenght Video 🙂
        This was during Pope Francis’ Visit in Georgia. It’s the “Our Father” sung by a syric orthodox priest and a young girl, in Aramaic language:

        Maybe this prayer will accompany you – it’s comes so deep from the heart!

        • Cristina MR says:

          Thank you so so much! I don’t know how many hours I’ve spent trying to find this song… It is not included in the OST, I though it would be impossible.
          Thank you, really! 🙂
