A second video for Rhye by Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen that shares the same precocious quality of storytelling and characterisation that marked out his first Rhye video for The Fall, and also his MVA award-winner for When Saints Go Machine’s Parix.
Daniel’s video for Open is also obliquely related to The Fall. Here a young couple head for the coast and a beachside holiday getaway, with a shadow hanging over their romance: is the young man a match for the free-spiritedness of his nubile girlfriend. Then the middle-aged couple from the first video stray into their orbit…
But the question of how this fits with the first video (is it a prequel?), or plotting, feels less relevant than the important task of to bringing believable characters to the screen. It almost goes without saying that Daniel is Danish, home of the world’s best TV drama… Something in the water over there? Or is it what they learn in film school?
