That was absolutely stunning. One of my favorite descriptions of 5D footage is not that it is "film-like" or "filmic", but that it looks like glossy magazine photos come to life. This goes even further and looks like stills from a fine art book.

I was just in France, shooting a doc in some of the same areas that Robin filmed in. I will say this about the French. I don't think you would ever see a piece like this from an American artist. The French have an eye and appreciation for beauty that is not present in our culture. Not that there aren't accomplished visual artists in other cultures, of course, there are but I see no other society that values beauty as much as the French, other than perhaps the Japanese but their aesthetic is very different. As an audience, the French have much more appreciation for the aesthetic than we do.

It was all brought home for me when I was exploring the Catacombs underneath the streets of Paris. If you look at the Catacombs in other countries like Italy and Spain, you see the entire skeletons/bodies, usually neatly stacked. But in the Catacombs in Paris, the bones were all stacked by type, all of the femurs in this section, all of the skulls here, etc. What impressed me is that not only were all of the bones stacked with almost mathematical precision, the workers back on the 1700 and 1800s had used the bones to make beautiful geometric patterns, even one section had skulls arranged in an almost floral arrangement. The French really value beauty more than any other culture I have seen, and I think that is illustrated in clips like this. Really well done, I loved it.

If the French had the same thing for story telling, then we would get our lungs dry with all the ooohs and aaahs.
Until then this is just another piece of the well-known French invention, called l'art pour l'art.

There are some good, epic French films with great story but I know what you mean. Most of the French films that I like are not terribly story driven, they are usually more circumstance driven with interesting visuals.

This clip is definitely done by a designer, not a storyteller. It's great and I really like it but I agree, not much of a story.

Clearly, the story was minimal by design. It's up to the viewer to interpret the story, rather than the writer/director to show it.

This isn't the case of a film that tried to tell a well defined story and failed.

Great work and proof that 24p is meaningless!

A lot of pretty images. I wasn't too enthralled with the largely flat lighting on the interiors in the first section.
