Beautiful, sometimes touching. A therapy project that turned into art.
It's incredibly beautiful, and tells the story very well. With well-composed tunes it goes through costume drama, to animated film, to fantasies with mermaids in the ocean. At first the beauty amazes you, and then you realize just how complex it is.
The films are different little pieces of the story, some say more than others, some are connected to each other.
Dead Meat: a great opening. It's a costume drama piece. Very beautiful, dramatic. Fencing scene.
Parachute: a beautiful scene at a kind of circus place. Deals with the question of what's real or not. Leaves you puzzled.
Wait For Me: a wet fantasy, so to speak. Mermaids and a Lennon in a boat. Beautiful, embroidered history of lost love.
Friendly Fire: about the relationship between the girlfriend and the best friend. Lennon plays his late friend Max Leroy.
Spectacle: seems like a bagatelle at first. You laugh at it, but you will realize it's a bit deeper than you thought.
Tomorrow: Beautiful song, video is beautiful but doesn't really do the song just.
On Again, Off Again: connected with the Friendly Fire film. Symbolic way of showing that he's been blind.
Headlights: sort of a break, it's more like a music video than the other films. Its strenght is it's beauty. Not much of the story in it.
Would I Be The One: a follow up to Headlights. An animated adventure, beautiful in it's simplicity. Also bears a message.
Falling Out Of Love: probably the most beautiful of the videos. Takes on where On Again, Off Again left off. It's dramatic, touching, and the end of the story.
