First of all it is absolutely amazing to see a music video that is basically shot as a film on proper film material with a huge budget. Secondly: you get to see the delightful Mylene Farmer naked. That in itself is worth watching the film. The film is basically a music video to a fairly timeless dance-floor song which has very well written lyrics in 18th century France. The images are fairly powerful and the message is amoral. Visually the film is very interesting as opposed to later videos by Mylene Farmer where she essentially uses a very Baroque or rather Rokkoko imagery to give ordinary pop songs a depth which they haven't got. It's interesting, it's sexy, it's intelligent. I have to say though that I found the sequel with its S/M images fairly disturbing.
