Storyline

Farmer appears in the movie in two images: as a woman of high society, and as a street prostitute. The partner of the singer in the video was an American TV actor Giancarlo Esposito, who also played two roles:a lover and a pimp. Prostitutes, appearing in the video - not an actress, but the real representatives of their profession. Milen admitted that she fell in love with this role. Abel Ferrara recalled that Farmer later thanked him for his professional work. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

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.
