    The best part of the film was when things started going exactly as I imagined they should (she broke through the glass and he got hit by the car). The worst part was when I got a sudden feeling of dread that the whole thing might turn into a diamond commercial.

    This just might be the best visual conception of how my girlfriend makes me feel.

    Oh my. Sex and death and defenestration. This is superb.

    Technically astounding, even though they ripped off the climax of the Rabbit in Your Headlights video.

    But did anyone else think that, given the subject of the short, this was a bit soulless and lacking human warmth?

    Beautiful. I was in a pub once in Manchester and as I walked in I saw a girl, sitting with a guy somewhat older than her, and she was so beautiful that I couldn’t breathe for quite a few seconds. I think my heart really did actually stop. I’ve never seen her like again.
    Well this video nails it (except my girl didn’t even look at me! haha.)
    I must have 600 DVDs and I’ve NEVER watched a ‘making-of’ extra, ever!

    That is some amazing artistry in this short. Perhaps this is a regrettable symptom of being bombarded with advertising every minute of my waking life, but I expected to be sold some cologne at the end, with a smooth, slightly breathless voice-over, “Invulnerable: a new fragrance from Calvin Klein.”

    Okay, I’m quite obviously lacking in the romanticism department – after 1:52 I lost interest and fast-forwarded to the end.

    Seriously, it has nice visuals, but I don’t see anything special about it. What is it you people see?

    (P.S. No, the slowness wasn’t the reasons for my desinterest – I’m anxiously waiting for the “live” broadcast of the as-best-as-possible-restored version of „Metropolis“ coming next Friday.)

    As I’m watching it I find myself preoccupied with how it was made.

    Wow, i’m really impressed with this. The concept behind this is strongly executed. It’s definitely quite emotional to watch how it plays out.

    I ran into this CG video by Alex Roman today that made me think of this one.

    “A FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view where main subjects are already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes surreal.”

    Beautifully done. I think the ‘making of’ takes away from the magic.

    Won’t someone think of the car driver?! Call EMS!

    Best reason yet not to build human-shaped robots who can fall in love.

    I *really* liked this.

    At some point my “irony department” kicked in with a caption:

    “Try not to get distracted while on Earth” – from the Super Beings Tour Guide

    Where did he get those beautiful shoes?

    This is one of thee most romantic things i have ever seen.
    The power of it’s symbolism is nearly unmatched. Love can find a way through anything, conquer and overcome any obstacles. This to me is true Love lasting a lifetime making it through all of life’s ups and downs.

    As an artist, I am a huge fan of saying A LOT with a little both in lyrics/words as well as in visuals. This is just brilliant.
