Valtari Mystery Film Experiment

Sigur Rós have a new album out, and against all the usual restrictions of budget and marketing control have given the same money to 12 filmmakers and let them create their own film of the tracks on the album. Sounds like the same old, but just check out this film by Alma Har’el for Fjögur píanó – heartbreakingly beautiful, and I couldn’t tell you why.

I could tell you more, but it seems inconsequential, apart from the fact there is nudity and some violence. Not often have I seen something where it just stops you in your tracks and you respond directly and emotionally without really understanding the story nor focusing on the surface details – like there is a famous star involved; but that serves to distract…

Just watch. (via Eve Massacre)
