a short story of love, rejection and tattoos.
22 May 2004 | by (London, England)) – See all my reviews

My friend who's a big Wong Kar Wai freak pestered me 2 buy this DVD Single, telling me how cool it was and boy was he right!

This music video/short movie has some of the most mesmorizingly beautiful photography I've seen from (the great) Christopher Doyle yet -the underwater sequence especially.

The story is a "your cheatin' heart" tale set within the strange locales of a warehouse and a swimming pool. It has a weird scene involving the romantic couple giving each other strange tattoos and a cool little kung fu fight scene thrown in there for good measure too.

The song itself is a funky chill out tune (which reminds me of the Malcolm McClaren song 'About Her' from the KILL BILL Vol. 2 soundtrack)it features a haunting sample from a track called 'Six Day War', whose refrain 'Tomorrow never comes until it's too late' digs its way into your head and won't let go.

Most people will recognise the lead actor Chang Chen of Happy Together and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon fame but the female lead was a mystery to me.

All in all, a gorgeous looking little video with an odd quote from Bruce Lee at the end: "The possession of anything begins in the mind." Indeed!
