Rhye 'Open' by Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen
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.

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
