Hello,

According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1566553/), Ruslana's music was used as a soundtrack for a 2011 American movie called How I Became an Elephant.

Ruslana's song Smak legendy is part of the soundtrack : http://www.howibecameanelephant.com/film-credits/

You can watch the official trailer here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BeBwe7yTw7o

Plot : One girl's journey to inspire a movement. Juliette is fourteen years old and she is on a mission to save elephants. After single-handedly raising funds Juliette embarks on a life-altering journey to South East Asia to meet and work with her hero The Elephant Lady. This is the story of two women, one from the East, one from the West, coming together on common ground, saving elephants. It's the coming of age of a passionate emerging woman joining forces with the wise eastern animal advocate on an enlightening journey of compassion, action, and hope that is sure to motivate audiences young and old. The message: no matter what your age, your ethnicity, or disposition, no matter what the cause, you can make a difference.

The movie is still unreleased!

I don't think that it was Ruslana who decided which song it will be used for the movie. It was the Americans' decision to use Smak legendy.

Translation: Exactly because it was Americans' decision to use Smak Legendy, it means even Americans prefer her Ukrainian songs, i.e. she'd better stop making crap like "Wow" or "Moon of Dreams" and stick to what she does best.

Why would they choose a song like "Wow" or "Moon of Dreams" in a documentary movie about saving elephants? They decided to use Smak legendy because it is a very beautiful song and fits to the idea of their project.

I agree with Alexandru. I don't think that the decision to use Smak Lehendy has anything to do with American or Urainian style. Smak Lehendy is a song that transmits a wonderful atmosphere which is probably suitable for the movie, while Wow, WD or other songs would have not been suitable.

I wonder how they came across this song. I can imagine that there are soundtrack databases available with hundred thousands of songs sorted by different categories and characteristics. So the song was chosen because of its characteristic suitable for this particular movie. It's pure coincidence that it's Ruslana and Ukrainian.

Aha, "Wow" and "MoD" would hardly suit anything proper..

May be as elephants are "exotic", they needed sth "exotic" and as Ruslana was often called "exotic", they decided to find sth by her... and found this very melody suitable... may be they didn't even know the language to be understood by majority of the people, thus adding to its "exoticness" :D:D:D

If it were a Belgian movie, I would say : They have chosen Ruslana because in Belgium she is even more rare then elephants.
Someone interested in making a movie about saving Ruslana fans in Western Europe ?
