If successful, we gain their trust and advance ourselves. If we fail, then it's no evolutionary boost for us. By the way, I still haven't seen this movie yet. My eldest brother and I are going tomorrow afternoon.

During the first hour or so of the movie I was getting the impression there was no music track per se. During the last half I think I heard some sections of what I might call a music track, possibly during poignant periods but not all poignant periods.
Is it possible there was no music track using actual old time instruments in their traditional way? There's nothing wrong with that (as long as musicians etc. aren't starting to lose work) but as a non-musical person I'm curious.
