David Knight - 4th Mar 2014

He's only made two videos in the past ten years, so a new music video by Stephane Sednaoui is a wonderful rarity - and this one for actress/singer Emmanuelle Seigner is stirring stuff indeed. And very French. 

The smouldering Ms Seigner embarks on a sexual adventure, starting on Parisien backstreets, and taking in a gay S&M club, as she plays cat-and-mouse with a much younger man. And this boy certainly knows what to do with a lazer pen.

It's a brazen fantasy, and big time sexuality - and great to have Stephane back making a video. Hopefully there'll be more...

Stephane Sednaoui:

"The song is about a 'distant lover', and I wanted to play around with this idea, to turn it into the concept of the music video. 'Distant' became never reachable, an impossible encounter, a relation that belongs more to the phantasm than to the reality.

"So, using the multiple talents of Emmanuelle Seigner, a singer as well as an actress, I portrayed her as a sexual predator looking to find a young male and get sexually satisfied. The laser light is for me the perfect metaphor for that 'connection', that possible orgasm that never seems to clearly belong to reality or to imagination."
