Brave, raw and moving video (the ending is beautiful..).
I love the expression of pain through dance… I think being able to express your pain in some form is one of the most important things in recovering from depression. Finding a way to express your pain rather than suppress it – whether you write, dance, paint, sing or find a loving soul that will simply listen to you. You need to release it.
I love that the woman dancer isn’t wearing makeup, hasn’t had her hair done and isn’t covered in fake tan!
She isn’t the usual picture perfect idealized (and highly sexualized) woman that seem to be portrayed as ‘normal’ in most mainstream music videos.. haha we all know that is faaaar from reality!!
Disillusioned with the tedium of his existence, psychiatrist Hector (Simon Pegg) confesses to his girlfriend (Rosamund Pike) that he feels he is a fraud for dispensing recommendations to patients who never seem to improve or get any happier. He considers breaking out of his lackluster routine. Summoning up some courage, Hector gives his starved curiosity free rein and embarks on an international quest to find the right formula to bring him joy and vitality.
