Less evocative, more weird
I'm a huge fan of Florence and I appreciate her creativity. That being said, I don't feel moved by this video as other reviewers have. It's like the Spectrum video where great ideas don't translate to a great finished product. It has some cool visual effects but the symbolism doesn't connect. The lyrics are so moving, I guess I was just hoping for the video to better live up to the song.
She looks like she plucked out her soul and set it to music; everything she does is unique and original and I can't wait to see what's next!
One of my favorite pieces of art from this year.
This video works on so many levels. The popular theory is that it follows the story of the original Little Mermaid, in which the mermaid falls in love with a human prince and has a spell cast on her so she can walk on land, BUT if the prince doesn't fall in love with her in a certain time frame, she will melt into sea foam. That was such a genius choice for this video. The song is about a suicidal drowning and the video is about a suicidal surfacing. They are both about making a fateful decision that may result in death. And they are both about how death can be beautiful and moving. So many parallels. I think using the Mermaid story was a really inspired choice, and the video is executed perfectly. The end is especially haunting. Just amazing. it captures the atmosphere of the song to a stunning degree- chilling, but beautiful... disturbing, but peaceful. Florence is wonderful.
Not Feeling It...
Her other videos captivated me and this one just seems ametuer. Maybe its because I dont especcialy like the lyrics to the song... I dont know. I love Florence though.
Different, it's nice to see her in another hair color, red is flawless on her. Black. Eh, music video does move me though.
Unmeasurable depth and incredibly moving.
This video is absolutely gorgeous. Everything about it evokes emotion.
It can be interpreted in many ways, it just depends on what you want it to mean for you, which is amazing.
Florence does an awesome job and is stunning as usual.
