Haunting, depressing, gripping
24 July 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The haunting video that accompanied the Marillion's eighth studio album. The film tells the fictional story about a confused runaway girl who's picked up by the police when found wandering at the Severn Bridge.

A police psychiatrist tries to unravel the mystery about the girl, who refuses to talk. He learns about her problems in her childhood, when she was abused by her father, her running away, her drug-abusing and more terrible things. Meanwhile almost all the songs of Marillion's album is being played.

Although maybe not the best film in the world, it will definitely leave you with a strange taste in your mouth. It helps if you like the Marillion's music though.
