This is one of the most "meaningful" videos I've seen. There are the excellent love/erotic scenes, there is the music, and there is the philosophical aspect... Every nuance of emotion is depicted quite skillfully and realistically. Mylene Farmer is a very good actress and thinker and it's a shame she is often regarded as merely a pop singer.
