The world's first music video
16 December 2009 | by (www.2020-movie-reviews.com) – See all my reviews

I guess this 3-minute short really counts as one of the world's first music videos as it was apparently made to accompany a song. The story is split into two parts, the first being toute seule (all alone). In this section we see a rather down-at-heel young lady, obviously a victim to the demon alcohol and Lord knows what else, taking a drink at a table outside a café. She has bags under her eyes and a missing tooth, but it's clear she could have been a beauty in her day. She sees all the people with someone to love as she wanders derelict streets. In the second part of the film, we see another woman who, having been cruelly rejected for another by the man she loves, commits suicide by jumping into a river.

You'll gather from the above description that this isn't the cheeriest of films, but it does have a wonderful Gallic atmosphere, and offers the viewer some tantalising glimpses of narrow Parisian streets. Definitely worth catching if you can find it.
