This is truly a video that deserves all the respect in the world. It’s an alternative look at the romance between Adam and Eve — or so I perceived it. Each couple represents a new understanding of romance, never-ending and true love. The song itself speaks of a glow so immense, that there’s no other light in the world beyond that of one lover for another.
The intimacy captured in this video is so raw, so open wide that it may be too much for anyone to watch in a public place. More than just the nudity, the closeness of each pair of lovers is so close it would seem as though we were infringing upon something delicate. Director Oliver Kartak (also known under the pseudonym Okalab) painted something of a decadent picture, literally using still frames dipped in wispy autumn hues to explore the natural depth of love and romance. It’s truly one of the most beautiful videos I’ve ever seen, depicting a classic story through the narrative arc of a gorgeous song.
