Cinematic Orchestra "To Build A Home" & "Breathe", Dir. Up The Resolution

repost, for justice's sake: a time to live.

(too small) mov of both parts here. director interview here.

uhm, most impressed with the narrative attempt here. at times, some very nice images, but overall, the piece is drowning in melodrama. First 2-3 mins is watchable. The rest is utterly fast forwardable.

Interesting that UTR directed this.

Very Boards of Canada-y. Let me sneak this thing on here..

lusk81, i'm glad i ain't the only one who feels that way. even so, the first part - with mullan assisting her while she was dying - was quite ballsy compared to the tear jerking melodrama at the end (which i don't find appropriate for 'breathe' at all, if you ask me).

We're working on a third video where its revealed she was actually just taking a nap and he goes in a right mood i can tell you and stomps off over the fields, which, hopefully, will go some way to pleasing everyone in that they can discount the second part as a dream.

Can we have the old-post back now please, i dont like this one daddy they're being nasty... utr.x

beautiful images yes but def doesn't hold the attention for long enough. the song drones on as well and the narrative doesn't really have an arc either.

What a boxset of sneery goons you are! This is utter fucking class. So many questions this piece raises and doesnt even attempt to answer its DARING as fuck and it WORKS godamn you. i guess dividing audiences is a good sign but End of the road, carrying over the threshold, the complicit death, the continuation of the journey to an altogether more spiritual place (and an APT use of increasingly melodramatic images in my view) its got depth, and its easily the greatest thing i've seen in at least a week.HEH! You fuckwits dont knO when you got it good :C)

i just read upthe old post comments off the link at the top a pretty remarkable contrast in opinions to this one I'm siding with the other team

that does not make me gay tho

Hypt, Agreed. Very emotional stuff. Powerful. However do feel that this was over all more "short film" than music video per se...

But I'm always glad to see the form pushed in anyway possible & have always appreciated the genuinely thought provoking or even blatantly sentimental clip when it's done right, as this one was.

But melancholy is generally a tough sell to the prozac nation & otherwise over stimulated crowd.

Look at how much people seem to love to hate M. Knight & those beautifully pointed films, as one of many examples.

Also, YES this is a tough & frequently just plain annoying crowd here at times. Can't help but feel the real point may be being missed by many of the more vocal here.

Jeez, at least make it constructive...

This is a gorgeous but devastatingly sad video. I personally responded to the slow pace and the carefully crafted images. And the acting is far beyond what you expect from a music video. Who says a short film and a music video have to be different things?

I don't dislike it (ZZZ)

No one in this site is right or wrong, just posting their opinions. No poster has the right to condescend and say those who didn't like it are jaded. Wrong. It's hard to entertain and move, this video put me to sleep, but I wasn't looking to be entertained and appreciate it on it's own terms. The key is in the edit, and not the performance which were fine.

It's welcome change to take music video into the realm of melodrama, would I watch it again? no.
