A spellbinding tale if their ever was one, this captures the awe one might have of coming in contact with creatures from another world. Dreyfuss, Dillon, Garr and Francois Truffaut as a top scientist, make their characters seem believable and Spielberg again handles everything in his usual flawless way. The best parts involve the special effects and a heartwarming climax involving the communication between species through harmonious synthesizers. John Williams-who scores most of Spielberg's work, offers another fine piece of music, that will surely become classic in years to come. For those of you who are interested, there is also a Special Edition of the film, which adds more depth to Dreyfuss' character and takes us inside the alien spacecraft.
